Williams award to run again in 2016
The Autosport Williams Engineer of the Future Award will run for the second time in 2016.
Nominations for the award closed in early May, with Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial, Loughborough, Bath, Southampton, Oxford Brookes and Belfast Queens University selecting candidates for consideration.
These will be whittled down to just five candidates, with the winner announced at the Autosport Awards on December 4.
The judging panel comprises former Ford R&D director Richard Parry-hones, Williams chief technical officer Pat Symonds, team HR director Nicola Slater, former Jaguar Formula 1 team boss Tony Purenll and Autosport editor-in-chief Edd Straw.
Last year’s inaugural award was won by Oxford Univeristy Engineering Science student Elizabeth Thompson, who won a two-year contract to work for Williams and will start work in September this year.
