Calling young, female engineers

If you’re a young woman who’s been successful in the engineering industry, why not enter the 2009 IET Young Woman Engineer of the Year Award?

Nominations are now open for the prize, which rewards achievements of women under the age of 30 working in the engineering industry and aims to encourage more of them to enter the sector. The winner will receive £1000 as well as media exposure, networking opportunities and a higher profile.

The IET says of the prize: “Following in the footsteps of a long line of high profile winners, The Young Woman Engineer of the Year 2009 will be an able ambassador, representing women in engineering and acting as a talented role model. She may find herself on the front page of a national newspaper, on TV or on the radio and should be more than prepared for her share of fame as well as good fortune in her career.”
