Graduate of the Year



The annual CIBSE ASHRAE Graduate of the Year Award is one of the industry’s most sought-after accolades. The 2019 Award first prize includes a trip to the ASHRAE Winter Conference in Orlando to which the award winner is invited as a guest of honour and is able to take part in the meeting as well as enjoy the host city. Generous cash bursaries are also presented to two runners up by the Rumford Club and all other finalists receive £100 each courtesy of the Manly Trust.

Entries for the CIBSE ASHRAE Graduate of the Year Award 2019 are now closed.

We will be in touch towards the end of August to let you know if the application has made the shortlist.
