SOFE is organised annually by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers' local volunteer groups. It was originally established in 1964 to challenge young engineers to prove that they could 'communicate effectively', which is still an important area in developing engineers today.

The competition provides young engineers with an excellent opportunity to demonstrate and develop their presentation skills and competence in public speaking.  Area heats are judged by a panel of professionals chosen by the local committee and each entry will receive feedback on their presentation afterwards.

2014 will see the revival of the SOFE competition in the Yorkshire region with area heats occurring in February and the Regional Final taking place in March.  The regional winners will then be presented with their awards at the Yorkshire Region Annual Dinner at the Cutlers Hall in Sheffield on the 14th of March.

Please see the main SOFE Competition page for full details including how to apply.


All entrants are required to submit a synopsis of their presentation. The synopses are then judged by the IMechE panel based on engineering content and entrants are then selected to present at the area competition.
