Overview

The Emerging Engineers Award (Brennan Cup in NI) is a competition open to ICE student and graduate members, as well as apprentices at either of these grades or holding professionally qualified membership as IEng MICE or EngTech MICE and continuing on their apprenticeship. Applicants submit and present their paper which may be on any topic related to civil engineering. The competition gives applicants an opportunity to highlight their technical expertise as well as showcase their communication skills.

We anticipate that the three NI finalists will present their papers in person to the judging panel. 

Heat winners from all regions are further shortlisted to three finalists who will present their papers again at the Emerging Engineers Award International Final in Autumn 2024, which will decide the overall ICE Emerging Engineer 2024.

Ben Millar

Ben is a graduate civil engineer. He is currently a post graduate researcher at Queen’s University Belfast, completing a PhD in bridge engineering, specifically on the hydrological and structural interactions which occur at masonry arch bridges. 

Ben’s interests lie in the field of structural health monitoring and extend to image analysis, finite element modelling and experimental data collection. 

His research is focused on developing a new method of predicting scour at bridges in an effort to combat the leading cause of bridge collapse and save historic bridges which are vital to our infrastructure network and industrial heritage.
