Young building service engineers and the companies that employ them have one month left to enter the CIBSE (Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers) Young Engineers Awards 2016, sponsored by Andrews Water Heaters.
The entry deadline is 1 August and CIBSE, with Andrews Water Heaters, is encouraging industry hopefuls to enter the awards which celebrate emerging talent and recognise the employers that recruit, train and support young engineers.
The Graduate of the Year category of the awards, recognised as the most sought-after prize for young building services engineers, celebrated its 20th anniversary last year. The first prize includes a trip to the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) Winter Meeting in Las Vegas next January to which, the award winner is invited as a guest of honour.
The accolade will be presented alongside The Employer of the Year Award, now in its eighth year, which consists of three categories rewarding small, medium and larger employers for showing innovative ways of integrating young engineers in their businesses and supporting their long-term development. The winners of both awards will be announced at a ceremony taking place at the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) in London on 13 October.
Andrews Water Heaters is a main sponsor of this event for the second year running. Sales director Chris Meir said: 'Sponsoring these awards is a fantastic way to show our support for both emerging talent in the engineering sector and the committed companies that encourage and nurture young engineers. Recognising talent is crucial to boosting skills in our sector and supporting the UK economy, so we’d encourage all relevant parties to enter these important awards.”
CIBSE’s membership marketing manager Nadia Gatter said: “The Young Engineers Awards reflect the vitally important role that young engineers and their employers have to play in futureproofing the built environment. Never has the call for new engineering talent been more urgent than it is today, which is why it’s key that we’re able to recognise and reward the hard work of engineers and employers.'
