Article Particle accelerator

The Particle accelerator Technical Network facilitates sharing and understanding of technical information and knowledge associated with Particle accelerator for the benefit of IET members and the wider community. All of our events are open to the public and most are free of charge.

Early-career Engineer Poster Competition

The particle accelerator engineering network is proud to open our early-career engineering poster competition for 2022. Applicants should be within 4 years of their undergraduate degree OR be registered in an industry or national lab graduate programme. The posters can cover any area of particle accelerator engineering (mechanical, electronic, electrical, control, etc) and membership of the IMECHE or IET is not required although is strongly encouraged for all engineers.

The prize is a £100 gift voucher plus an IET certificate

The competition is open to graduate engineers and engineering students either in industry, national laboratories or universities and is open to all age ranges.

Entrants must be available to stand by their poster A0 on the afternoon of the 25th November during a poster and networking session of the PAE Network annual meeting being held at CERN this year.   Annual Event details are here 

To enter the competition please email your name, affiliation and poster title to Prof Graeme Burt before 4pm on the 4th November 2022.

Meet the Chair of the IET Particle Accelerator Engineering Network: Prof Graeme Burt is an international expert in the development of RF systems for particle accelerators covering RF amplifiers and RF cavities for a range of applications from high energy physics, light sources and medical accelerators. He teaches electronic & electrical engineering at Lancaster University as well as being a member of the Cockcroft Institute. He is currently the technical coordinator for HL-LHC-UK and has co-authored a textbook on accelerator science. He is the co-founder of the particle accelerator engineering network. Graeme is also very passionate about student mental health and increasing awareness about this subject.
