CIBSE young engineers awards 2018

Last year's Graduate of the Year shortlisted entrants

The CIBSE Young Engineers Awards 2019 are now open for entries. The awards, comprising the Employer of the Year and Graduate of the Year, celebrate the best young talent in the industry, together with the employers who support, mentor and develop them.

The Employer Award has categories for small, medium and large employers, and an overall winner. Employers are asked to show how they place young engineers at the centre of their business and invest in their careers. Judges will look for evidence of innovative methods of motivating young engineers and encouraging them to fulfil their potential.

The Graduate Award, jointly presented by CIBSE and ASHRAE, is in its 24th year and has long been the most sought-after accolade for young building services engineers. Finalists are challenged to show off their presentation skills on a given topic in front of a panel of industry judges.

This year’s winner will enjoy a fully paid-for trip to the ASHRAE Winter Meeting in Orlando, Florida, next February. Two runners-up will receive generous cash bursaries from The Rumford Club and every other finalist will receive £100 from the Manly Trust.

Any engineer who has graduated in a building services-related field, either under or post graduate, in the past two years is eligible to take part.

The awards will take place on 10 October at the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) in London. They are sponsored by Andrews Water Heaters, Kingspan Industrial Insulation and Swegon Air Management, supported by CIBSE Patrons and organised by the CIBSE ASHRAE Group in conjunction with the CIBSE Young Engineers’ Network (YEN).
