Graduate engineer nets Pitch 200 title with fishy video

Verena Fernandes representing South East England netted the most votes to win this year’s ICE Pitch 200 after explaining the consequences of dams on salmon migration and possible solutions in just 200 seconds!

More than 3,400 people voted as part of the unique competition that challenges ICE members to use their creativity and communication skills to explain a civil engineering concept or project in an accessible and entertaining self-filmed video.

Vivek Jhaveri representing the Middle East region came second with a pitch video on the use of 3D printed concrete in construction, while third place went to Scotland’s Lauryn Steel for a video on bridge types.

The Regional Education Team presents three awards to individuals and companies that have made a significant contribution to the ICE ambassador scheme and helped raise the profile of civil engineering among young people.

  • STEM Ambassador Award
    A member of the ICE ambassador scheme who has made an impact

  • Company Award
    Presented to an employer that has been the most effective during the previous school year in the Yorkshire and Humber region.

The Yorkshire Geotechnical Group Presentation Competition is open to young geotechnical engineers (aged 30 or under by the end of the year of entry).

The aim of the competition is to encourage young engineers to prepare and give a technical presentation. It may be on any topic dealing with engineering behaviour of the ground, and can be based on a construction/design project or research.

The presentation doesn't have to focus on work that's completely your own, but you would need to point what part you played in the project or research.

Up to six finalists are chosen to give a 10-minute presentation, which should emphasise the geotechnical aspects of the work. There will be approximately five minutes allowed after each presentation for questions from the floor. A panel of professional engineers will judge the competition.

There are also cash prizes (kindly donated by the evening sponsors) available for competition winners. All entrants will be encouraged to produce a poster to exhibit on the evening of the final and a cash prize will be awarded to the best poster chosen by the judges.
