- 2015 East Yorkshire Area Heat

On Saturday the 22nd November 2014 IMechE Young Members from the East Yorkshire region gathered at the University of Hull to demonstrate their presentation skills and passion for Engineering.  Each applicant gave a 15 minute presentation to a panel of professional engineers from the East Yorkshire IMechE committee, who volunteered their time to support the competition.  

After a morning of interesting presentations covering pre-stressing of composites through to condition monitoring and simulation of human pelvis stress/strain, the panel of judges had the difficult job of choosing a winner and providing valuable feedback to all the entries.
In the end the winner was determined to be Linda Paine, a MEng Mechanical Engineering student at the University of Hull, closely followed by runner up Adnan Fazal.

The winner from the East Yorkshire Area Heat will now automatically be entered into the Yorkshire Regional final where up to £300 prize money is on offer.  The Regional final is due to take place in early 2015 and the winners will be announced at the Yorkshire Regional Annual Dinner, at the Cutlers Hall in Sheffield on the 13th March.

Winner:                                               Runner up:

Linda Paine               Adnan Fazal


On behalf of the East Yorkshire Young Members committee I would like to wish Linda the best of luck in the regional finals and give our thanks to the fantastic judges, Alan Brattan, Adrian Waddington & Colin Sunderland for giving up their Saturday to support the event.  A big thank you also goes out to Elevation Recruitment for sponsoring the event and providing the winner's Trophy.
