Spanning 15 categories in total, the awards are judged by engineering experts and entries will be assessed for:

  • the level of innovation shown
  • the thoroughness with which ideas have been pursued
  • the economic or social benefits involved

Past winners for this category include Plessey Semiconductors Ltd and University of Sussex for their Generic Electric Potential Sensor Technology (2011), and University of Manchester and Pipeline Engineering for new acoustic techniques for monitoring gas filled subsea pipelines (2010).
