As a professional engineer, you can reward your colleagues and peers for their achievements which can truly be said to have improved the world, or advanced the discipline of mechanical engineering.
The Institution of Mechanical Engineers aims to bestow the prestigious awards below on those engineers that have helped to innovate and reach high standards of excellence throughout a variety of fields and expertise.
Awarded to a member(s) of the Institution of any grade (Affiliate to Fellow), who, in the opinion of the Trustee Board, contributes most in that year (or over recent years) to modern engineering science – by way of research, invention, experimental work or a treatise or a paper on a modern engineering subject or originality in engineering design or by service to engineering. Closing date for applications 31 March 2014. Extended to 30 April 2014.
The Verena Winifred Holmes Award (previously the Equality and Diversity Award) is intended to recognise those individuals who have achieved by undertaking a unique challenge or experience, perhaps to benefit people from groups with different needs, or with a past record of disadvantage or low participation. They have stretched the normal boundaries of expectation for the benefit of the wider society. Embarking upon this approach often requires persistence and courage, which may also be attributes demonstrated by candidates for this award.
The fundamental attribute for this award is that candidates have demonstrated that they 'value difference'. They recognise that innovation is stimulated by embracing diversity, by listening to and respecting the perspective of others, and by constructive engagement and dialogue. The definition for this award is intentionally broad, to allow for a wider pool of potential candidates, who will have approached these attributes in a variety of situations." Closing date for applications 31 March 2014. Extended to 30 April 2014.
