IET Young Women Engineer of the Year Awards

IET Young Women Engineer of the Year Awards


Launched in 1978, it was originally known as the Girl Technician of the Year, but was changed to the Young Woman Engineer of the Year in 1988.

The Young Women Engineer of the Year (YWE) awards highlight inspirational women and what they have achieved as engineers.

As well as highlighting female engineering talent, the IET YWE Awards seek to find role models who can help address the UK science and engineering skills crisis by promoting engineering careers to more girls and women. Just 12% of those working in engineering occupations are women (source: Engineering UK).

Entries are now open for the 2019 awards, and there are three categories:

  • The Mary George Memorial Prize for Apprentices
  • Women’s Engineering Society (WES) Prize
  • Gender Diversity Ambassador Award

Full details of the awards can be found here, as well as details of sponsorship opportunities.
