Britain’s Queen Elizabeth presented her first-ever Prize for Engineering during a ceremony in late June at Buckingham Palace. Some hope the new award will become the engineering equivalent of the Nobel Prize for scientific achievement. The award includes a prize of one million British pounds, or about $1.5 million. It was presented to five men who invented the Internet and developed the ways one-third of the world’s population uses it.

Americans Robert Kahn and Vincent Cerf and Frenchman Louis Pouzin invented the Internet’s basic protocols. They shared the award with Britain’s Tim Berners-Lee, who created the World Wide Web, and American Marc Andreesen, who invented the first Web browsing software. The morning after they received the award, some of the winners spoke to hundreds of students from London schools. Robert Kahn said the Internet is so much a part of people’s lives, they don’t really think about all the protocols for making things work together. These link together networks, computers and application programs. He said a lot of people didn’t think it was a particularly good idea when they first started out on it.

Vincent Cerf partnered with Robert Kahn in developing the TCP/IP protocol that makes Internet traffic possible. He is now a vice president of Google. He said the significance is not the winning. The significance is the existence of the prize at all. He said it elevates engineering to the same level of visibility and recognition as the Nobel prizes. Both men said their satisfaction comes from the wide use of the Internet and the fact that their basic technical architecture is still a main part of it.
