James Dyson Award Logo

The James Dyson Award is a $35,000 international design award that celebrates, encourages and inspires the next generation of design engineers. It’s open to current and recent design engineering students, and is run by the James Dyson Foundation, James Dyson’s charitable trust, as part of its mission to get young people excited about design engineering.

Are you a current student or recent graduate with an ingenious invention that solves a problem?

Past winners have sought to address food waste, water conservation, pollution, medical treatment in developing countries and sustainability across all industries. The best entries provide clear and intelligent solutions to real-world problems.

Entries are an array of engineering and design disciplines, from industrial and product design to software, mechanical, aeronautical and biomedical engineering.

Winners also gain international media exposure which has helped past winners Petit Pli, expandable clothing for children, and Mimica, a bio-reactive food label, develop into successful businesses.
