The competition, sponsored by the local branch of the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), was open to primary and secondary school pupils who were asked to put forward their ideas for “The Future of STEM.”

The future is probably more exciting than we can imagine, and that is why we think it is so important for the next generation of engineers and scientists to explore the endless possibilities. Looking at the ideas from both primary and secondary school pupils, from flying cars and holidays in space to life saving artificial intelligence and solutions for planet pollution I can safely say that there is a bright future ahead of us

Professor José Fiadeiro, Dean of the School of Science and Engineering

"We had a great response to the poster competition, receiving so many imaginative and high-quality entries.” Professor Jonathan Knappett, discipline lead for Civil Engineering and a member of the judging panel added.

“This made deciding a top three very difficult indeed!  It was clear that a lot of time and effort was put into creating the posters.  If even half of the proposed future developments happen, we will be living in very exciting times indeed!"

We are delighted to announce the winners of each category from incredibly imaginative, innovative and inspiring entries.
