BrightSparks. Competition to find the Design Engineers of Tomorrow

Following on from a succesful 2017 BrightSparks programme, 2018 sees the launch of this year's search for our engineers of tomorrow, celebrating the very best of UK based talent.

RS chief executive Lindsley Ruth hails the EW BrightSparks programme, commenting: "We are very pleased and proud to announce that we will be running a new EW BrightSparks programme for 2018".

"We will be looking for the young engineers who are already making a difference in the first years of their working life, or who are still studying but are showing the promise to become the people behind big future innovations in electronics".

"Why are we doing this? We believe that by celebrating the achievements of the most talented young people in the electronics world, we can play a significant role in inspiring and encouraging new entrants to the industry. This is particularly important in the context of the industry’s well-publicised skills gap and the efforts of the UK government and other organisations to encourage greater take-up in schools and universities of STEM and engineering-related subjects".

Paul Hide, techUK, will again join the judging panel, with the winners announced on the 3rd May.
