Join us for the Emerging Engineers Award – International Final 2020

02 September 2020

Join us for this free event, which is a great opportunity to learn about the research and work of our brightest young stars.

Join us for the Emerging Engineers Award – International Final 2020

Join us online, Friday 2 October 9.00am, to watch the top four Emerging Engineers Award finalists from across the UK and International regions. Due to ongoing limitations with holding in-person events, the Emerging Engineers Award International Final will be live-streamed.

Each finalist will showcase their technical expertise by presenting a paper in their chosen area of engineering design, research or practice, followed by a Q&A from the judging panel and audience.

Our 2020 international finalists are:

  • Deryck Chan (East of England) for: Modelling the influence of structural stiffness on basement heave in over-consolidated clay
  • Jason Lo (Hong Kong) for: Carbon Capture and Storage–Residual Trapping
  • Dominic McIlgrew (West Midlands) for: Using sustainable polymer sleepers to replace in-situ concrete in Relocatable Equipment Building (REB) foundations
  • Selina Rai (Yorkshire & Humber) for: The Effect of Staggered Openings on the Seismic Performance of Reinforced Concrete Shear Walls

Each finalist will have to impress our panel of judges to be in with a chance of winning a cash prize and the prestigious Institution Medal.

This event is great opportunity for graduate and student members to prepare for professional qualification by learning about different aspects of civil engineering and seeing first-hand the types of questions asked by the judges.

We look forward to welcoming you all to what will be a very informative and enlightening event – book your place now to support our best emerging talent.
