Young Structural Engineering Professional Award

Aimed at young professionals in structural engineering who demonstrate outstanding performance and show exceptional promise for the future.

The Young Structural Engineering Professional Award 2017 is now open for entries

We want to promote the accomplishments of YOU, the young structural engineers – showcasing the diverse and skilled individuals who are driving the profession forward. Winning the award is a unique opportunity to be marked out as “one to watch” among the Institution’s global membership, and an internationally recognised mark of achievement in structural engineering.
 
Structural engineering is an exciting career and that is why winners of this award have the opportunity to act as an ambassador for the Institution and the profession – showcasing the crucial role engineers play in shaping the built environment and providing identifiable role models for young people interested in engineering.

The scheme is open to members of The Institution of Structural Engineers aged 30 years or under.
