CIBSE has announced the shortlist for its Young Engineers Awards

Engineering undergraduates, apprentices and graduates have demonstrated their passion and dedication to the industry to be shortlisted for the CIBSE Young Engineers Awards (YEAs) 2023. They are joined in the line-up by nine companies leading the way in nurturing and supporting industry talent.

The CIBSE Young Engineers Awards recognise and reward the innovative thinking, hard work and skills of graduates, apprentices, and undergraduates whilst also showcasing employers who are truly committed to developing and encouraging young talent.

New for 2023 the Undergraduate award sees five undergraduates shortlisted for their final year project. The award has been brought within the YEAs to better showcase those making exceptional starts on their very early paths to careers in building services engineering and is open to students in their final year of a BSc. MSc and Meng study.

In the Apprentice of the Year award, 12 apprentices across two categories – Degree (level 5-7) and Technician (level 3-4) – have been shortlisted, following submissions of a three-minute video focusing on an aspect of their experience as building services apprentices.

Nine young engineers have made it through to the Graduate of the Year finals, each of which will demonstrate their presentation skills in front of a panel of industry judges at the Awards night in October, with the overall winner receiving a fully paid trip to the ASHRAE Winter Conference.

In the Employer of the Year award, nine companies have been shortlisted across three categories for small, medium and large companies, for their commitment to placing the growth of their employees at the heart of their business.

Adrian Catchpole CIBSE President said: “These shortlisted young engineers are at the heart of our industry’s ability to meet our commitments to cutting global emissions and retrofitting buildings for net zero. It is their passion and talent that we will be relying on to lead the way in driving innovation and change. To enable them to reach their full potential we need companies committed to developing their skills. Our employer shortlists are doing just that.”

The Awards are taking place on 12 October at the Royal College of Physicians, London, and are sponsored by ACV, BCIA, Eaton, ideal Heating, Panasonic and Swegon.
