CIBSE has a longstanding relationship with Auckland University of Technology (AUT). Their engineering courses and graduates provide vital talent for building services engineering.
As part of this relationship and an ongoing strategy to raise awareness for building services careers in the region, CIBSE supports the prizes awarded to students studying Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) – Architectural Engineering major, for the second year running.
Mark Crawford, CIBSE Auckland Chair and Jerrin Pius, Auckland Young Engineers Chair, attended AUT last month for the award ceremony organised by Head of Built Environment Engineering at AUT, Nicola Naismith to present the awards.
The three students honoured for their achievements are:
Weixi Wang – Best performance in Electrical Principles B, 1st Year
Divya Kataria – Best performance in Building Construction paper, 2nd Year (currently on student exchange in Europe)
Megan Burfoot – Best performance in Heating Ventilation and Air-conditioning Systems paper, 3rd Year

A presentation from Mark and Jerrin was also an opportunity for students to learn more about career opportunities in building services engineering, the benefits the CIBSE can offer to support their career as well as the Mark Griffin Student Award, part of the 2018 CIBSE Young Engineers Awards.
CIBSE's Young Engineers Network (YEN) Committee foster CIBSE's relationship with universities around Australia and New Zealand through various local university programmes including in-lecture talks, career fairs, recognition and industry experiences. They volunteer their time to raise the profile of building services engineering as a career and awareness of the impacts young engineers have on innovative design, workplace wellness and energy management in the built environment – which of course has massive environment implications on global carbon emissions.
