Faraday Medal


The IET Faraday Medal, named after Michael Faraday, was established to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the first Ordinary Meeting of the Society of Telegraph Engineers.

It is the most prestigious of the IET Achievement Medals and is awarded either for notable scientific or industrial achievement in engineering, or for conspicuous service rendered to the advancement of science, engineering and technology, or for lifetime achievement in science, engineering or technology.

The medal is global and open to all. Award winners are chosen by the IET Awards and Prizes Committee.

The winner will receive a bronze medal and vellum scroll and be invited to sign the Roll of Honour album, a leather bound volume containing the photographs and signatures of all Faraday recipients, and also IET Honorary Fellows, going back through time until the inception of these awards.
