IABM Engineering Student Awards





Students undertaking a technical education at degree level are often unaware of the amazing career opportunities that are available in the broadcast and media technology industry. Even where they see the chance, it can be difficult to make connections with the right people in the right companies.

Every year the Foundation makes awards of expenses paid visits for students to NAB in the USA and IBC in Amsterdam. The successful students get to see the amazing technology which is showcased at NAB and IBC and get to meet technical experts and prospective employers. Over five days they have the chance to investigate and advance their own career futures and gain the opportunity to brief fellow students on their return.

Further information about these conventions is available at www.nabshow.org and www.ibc.org

The Foundation invites applications for these awards from students undertaking a relevant full time degree level course at our Partner colleges and universities who run competitions for places.

Full Terms and Conditions of these awards can be found here.
