Where are they now?

Last year’s winner Noel Bakhtian said on visiting Boeing after winning the award: "It was such an honor to meet and share my research with the engineering leaders. They were all supportive and engaged."
For the first time this year, as well as the overall award, a special prize will be given to the best undergraduate submission, giving global recognition to those working on their first degree.
Undergraduate award - open to all students still working for their first degree in chosen specialism.
Postgraduate award - open to all postgraduates and those working towards further research qualifications.
Remember, this competition is open to any engineering student currently enrolled in a programme leading to a recognised academic degree such as BSc, MSc. or PhD.
Entries MUST include:
*Including but not limited to new patents or documented applications that have been adopted by industry, or published papers or research that have won recognition from academic, professional or industrial associations.
The 2012 Engineering Student of the Year and a companion will be guests of Boeing at the Farnborough air show. The award will be presented on 10 July 2012 as part of Flightglobal's Achievement Awards event. Boeing will arrange complimentary air travel, hotel accommodation and air show tickets for two people.
The judges may also, at their discretion, award a special distinction to the best undergraduate submission, separate to the overall winner. That person will be awarded a certificate and their details and citation will be included in Flightglobal’s coverage of the award.
Students can nominate themselves or be nominated by their professors.
The submission deadline is 21 May 2012.
