Prizes and Awards

The Society has presented awards and medals since its earliest days. More recently it has instituted a prize of a medal and a book token for the best student in the Scottish Qualifications Certificate Higher examination that the Council believe most closely matches the objects of the Society. From 2012 this was the examination in Technological Studies and from 2016 the Engineering Science syllabus. From 2018 an award has also been made for the best student in the Advanced Higher Engineering Science examination.

To commemorate the Society's bicentenary a Travel Scholarship was instituted for Scottish undergraduates in STEM subjects.
