Boeing Engineering Student of the Year Award

Boeing Integrated Defense Systems is proud to sponsor the Engineering Student of the Year award. This exciting award, now in its third year is aimed at engineering students around the world. The winner of the award will receive a paid trip for two to attend the 2008 Farnborough Airshow this summer in the UK.

The key criterion for award entries 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 or processes or tools, new levels of performance, improved life cycle costs, new capabilities, or in other areas. The award is open to any full- or part-time engineering student in a program leading to a recognized academic degree such as BS, MS, or Ph.D.

To enter students need to submit a summary of their work (500 words maximum), plus any supporting material. This could include new patents or documented applications that have been adopted by industry, published papers or research that have won recognition from academic, professional or industrial associations. All entries must be emailed to the Flightglobal Webmaster by June 13th, 2008. The entries are judged by a panel of distinguished retired Boeing senior engineers.

Boeing arranges free flights and accommodation for the winner of the award and an accompanying person to attend the 2008 Farnborough Airshow as a guest of Boeing. The award will be presented during Flight International's 100th anniversary celebration on Tuesday, 15th July at the TAG Aviation terminal’s VIP suite at Farnborough.
