Speak Out for Engineering 2019

We’re proud to be sponsoring the Speak Out for Engineering 2019 competition for another year.

The annual competition is organised by volunteer groups from the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and has been running since 1965. The competition gives young engineers a chance to demonstrate how effectively they can communicate, an important skill for anyone in the field.

With 90% of the total marks awarded for presentation and only 10% for technical content, this competition is a fantastic opportunity for engineers to highlight their strengths to their peers and future employers.  Find out how winning the competition has benefitted previous winners.


Applications are now open for the 2019 competition, but the deadline is 31st December 2018 at 23:59 so you’ll need to be quick. 

You can find out more about the competition on the IMechE website
