The award particularly encourages joint projects among industry, research laboratories, and academic institutions. The endeavour is meant to encourage young talent and accord recognition and incentives to them. Though the response to the award during the last twenty-two years has been quite encouraging, the Academy earnestly wishes to reach out to a wider cross-section of the community and profession.

The nominations are invited for project/thesis pertaining to the Bachelors’s, Masters or Doctoral level from the engineering College/Institutions. The last date for the receipt of nominations is August 31, 2020.
