WMG EngD student wins engineering photography competition

One of our EngD students, and a budding photographer, Vadim Melnicuk has scooped first place in the Institute of Engineering and Technology’s (IET) International Engineering Photography Competition.

The competition was open to any photograph of an engineering-related subject that captures the dynamic, creative and progressive face of engineering and engineers today.

IET President Nick Winser said: “Engineering is an exciting and fast-changing sector – shaping the world around us and improving the quality of our everyday lives. It is a diverse, creative and exciting profession, and yet the traditional image of engineering focuses on hard hats and dirty overalls – which the IET is committed to change.

“We launched our photography competition to help banish the outdated perception that engineers just fix and mend things. We received some brilliant images and I’d like to congratulate our winners.”

Vadim’s photograph, which took top spot in the Digital category, now has pride of place on display in IET London: Savoy Place, alongside all of the other winning pictures.
