To establish the Queen Elizabeth Prize for Engineering…

as the pre-eminent award for a feat of engineering that has been of global impact on humanity

Engineering is hardwired into us. From the earliest times, people have worked to shape the world around them and improve their lives through engineering. The benefits are obvious and the impact incalculable. Everything we take for granted, from medicine to telecommunications, from computing to aviation, owes its very existence to engineers. It is obvious to me that the symbiotic relationship between science and engineering will define the future of the global economy, and on a wider scale, the future of our civilisation, just as it defined our past. ”

Professor Brian Cox
