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

“ The importance of engineering to the world is often overlooked; it is engineering in all its many varied forms that enables the world to work. We engineers are our own worst enemies, too busy delivering solutions to talk about them! That's why the Queen Elizabeth Prize for Engineering is such a wonderful opportunity to celebrate engineering's contribution to society. ”

Paul Westbury
