CIBSE ASHRAE Young Engineers Awards 2013 – open for entries
Posted: 22 March 2013
CIBSE is now inviting entries for the CIBSE ASHRAE Young Engineers Awards 2013. Building services engineers, who have recently graduated, and employers of graduates both have categories to enter in the Awards. Entries need to be received by July 31, 2013.
The CIBSE ASHRAE Graduate of the Year Award is open to building services engineers who have graduated in the past two years, and the winner will attend the ASHRAE Winter Conference 2014 in New York.
Those shortlisted get the chance to present their ideas at the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), London on October 9, 2013 where the judging panel will choose the Young Graduate of the Year, and the Employer of the Year will be announced. The prestigious judging panel at the event includes the Presidents of the ASHRAE, CIBSE and the IMechE along with the 2012 Graduate of the Year, Lee Tabis.
The CIBSE Employer of the Year Award, with an overall first prize of £1,000 of training vouchers, recognises those companies - large, medium and small - which proactively champion building performance excellence, whether through a commitment to young people in employment or by supporting those employees through education. The Employer of the Year Award champions employers who are helping support building services engineering as a career.
With a predicted shortage of engineering talent, recognising and rewarding important emerging talent in the field of building services engineering, and those organisations that are supporting this and enabling new engineers to develop is increasingly important.
The CIBSE ASHRAE Graduate of the Year Award is now in its 18th Year, and the CIBSE Employer of the Year awards was founded by the CIBSE Young Engineers' Network. Both Awards are supported by four of the world's most important building services engineering professional institutions: CIBSE; ASHRAE; the IMechE; and the Institute of Refrigeration.
