IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Society Outstanding Young Engineer Award

To recognize an outstanding young I&M member who has distinguished himself/herself through achievement(s), which may be technical (within the I&M filed of interest), may be exemplary service to the I&M Society, or may be a combination of both. What distinguishes this award from other I&M achievement-based awards is that by its title, this award’s focus in on a person, not an achievement, and the Society implicitly recognizes the person who was responsible for the success of the cited achievement(s) during his/her early career.

Prize:
$2,000, Plaque and travel allowance of up to $1,000 is granted on a need basis for the recipient to attend the awards ceremony.
Funding:
Funded by the IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Society.
Presentation:
Awarded annually at the discretion of the I&M Society Awards Committee at the following year’s I2MTC awards ceremony.
Basis for Judgement:
Recognizes an outstanding young I&M member who has distinguished him/herself through achievements, which are technical, of exemplary service to the I&M Society, or a combination of both, early in their career. The nomination must clearly indicate the achievements that define the excellence of the candidate and must reference/provide relevant documentation that is in/or not in/ the public domain.
