Milne Medal

The Milne Medal is awarded to an individual engineer for excellence in structural design, both in the overall concept and in the attention to detail in their work, and is named in recognition of the late Bob Milne, who served for many years as the Honorary Secretary of the IABSE British Group. The recipient delivers a lecture, usually in November, at the Institution of Structural Engineers.
