Are you the 2010 Engineering Student of the Year?

The Boeing Company is proud to sponsor the fifth annual Engineering Student of the Year in association with Flightglobal. This exciting award is open to engineering students around the world. The winner will be honoured this July at the Farnborough air show and have the chance to meet and network with aerospace leaders at one of the industry’s biggest international events.

The key criterion for this award is the impact, or potential for impact, of the candidate's work on current or future aeronautical or space technology. This impact might be seen in new or enhanced systems, processes or tools; new levels of performance; improved lifecycle costs; new capabilities; or other areas. The award is open to any full- or part-time engineering student in a programme leading to a recognised academic degree such as BSc, MSc, or PhD.

The 2010 entries will be judged by a distinguished panel of former and current Boeing engineering leaders. Students can enter themselves, or a professor may nominate on behalf of a student. Entries should include the nominee’s contact details, a 500-word summary and supporting material, which could include 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.
