Present around the World (PATW) is the IET’s presentation competition for students, recent graduates, apprentices and young professionals aged 18 to 26. Competitors are asked to give a presentation for 10 minutes on a subject related to engineering and technology, and to answer questions for a further five minutes. It is perfectly acceptable to use your final year project presentation, a presentation from your graduate scheme or any other presentation which you already have.
The event is mainly to judge presentation skills although the topic should be appropriate to the intended audience of students and young professionals. The prizes are £150 for the winner and £100 for the runner-up. The runner-up prize will only be awarded if there are four or more competitors (maximum of eight).
The winner and runner-up of the Local Networks (LNs) Heat also receive one year’s free student or associate level membership of the IET.
The winner may also qualify for the later stages of the worldwide competition, which offer greater prize money and the opportunity to travel. More information is available at http://conferences.theiet.org/patw/about/index.cfm
HOW TO ENTER
