Gear up for the Engineers Ireland Excellence Awards 2018!
12 June 2018
Engineers and engineering organisations are encouraged to celebrate their achievements and skill by submitting an entry to the 2018 Engineers Ireland Excellence Awards.
Now in its ninth year, the Engineers Ireland Excellence Awards are presented annually in recognition of the achievements of engineers who have demonstrated exceptional engineering skills through their work. As well as identifying leaders within the engineering industry, the awards provide an opportunity to showcase and celebrate the invaluable contribution the engineering profession makes to society and applaud the innovation and quality of work produced by engineers both at home and abroad.
Award categories open for entry from Wednesday, June 20, include:
- Engineering Project of the Year, sponsored by Transport Infrastructure Ireland
- Geoscience Ireland Award
- Local Authority Engineering Initiative Award
- Technical Innovation Award
- Heritage and Conservation Award
Each regional branch, engineering division and society committee of Engineers Ireland is also encouraged to nominate their best presentation for the 2017-2018 season in the Best Presentation Award category, sponsored by Griffiths & Armour and Beale & Company. This award recognises individuals who have contributed to the engineering profession by delivering outstanding technical presentations to our members.
The Chartered Engineer of the Year, sponsored by ARUP, will also be presented.
Members of the public are also encouraged to nominate an Irish engineer that you know who has worked or is working on a project outside of Ireland that clearly contributes to society for the International Engineer of the Year Award. It aims to acknowledge the contribution of the Irish engineering diaspora by recognising the excellent work of Irish engineers around the world.
The deadline for entry to the 2018 awards is 2pm on Monday, September 10, 2018. A black-tie ceremony to showcase, celebrate and announce the winners will take place in Dublin’s InterContinental Hotel, Ballsbridge, on Friday, November 9, 2018.
