Aberdeen Regional Heat Tuesday 25th February – doors open at 5.45 pm for 6 pm start

The Speak Out for Engineering (SOFE) competition provides young engineers with an excellent opportunity to demonstrate and develop their verbal and visual presentation skills and competence in public speaking.

Each competitor will give a 20 minute oral presentation on a mechanical engineering related subject which will be followed by a 10 minute discussion & question session from judges.

Presentations will be judged by panel of engineers with feedback provided. The heat winner will receive £300 and the runner up will receive £200. The heat winner will attend the Scottish Final (held later in 2020) with larger cash prizes available.


The evening will consist of 4 presentations on various engineering topics; the audience can put the speakers to the test during question time at the end of each presentation.

A buffet will be provided after the first two presentations with further time for networking at the end of the event

Please register by booking your place at the event.

You do not have to be presenting to attend.
