Recognises an outstanding and demonstrated personal contribution to UK engineering, which results in successful market exploitation, by an engineer with less than 22 years in full-time employment or equivalent, who will normally be Chartered. (Any career breaks will be appropriately considered by the Committee.)

Consideration will be given where an equal contribution has been made by more than one person, in which case, a joint award of two medals may be justified.

Nominations that do not win the medal will remain before the Awards Committee for the succeeding two years unless barred by the requisite number of years in full-time employment/equivalent.

Nominations are now closed.

All nominations are made via our online system:
