Search is on for Scotland’s best Emerging Engineer

Entries can now be made for ICE Scotland’s Emerging Engineers Award which promotes and rewards outstanding communication of civil engineering ideas and research.

ICE student, graduate and trainee technician members, who live and work in Scotland, can submit a paper on any civil engineering-related topic in the format of research, a report or essay in an attempt to win the title of Scotland’s Emerging Engineer.

Entering the award is a great opportunity to:

  • Promote new ideas, research and best practice to the engineering community
  • Improve written and verbal skills to help prepare for Professional Review
  • Demonstrate talent to the engineering community and peers
  • Add to Continuing Professional Development (CPD) record

Entries should be based on an individual’s own work and can be adapted from university/employment research papers, project reports, quarterly employment reports, written exercises or Professional Review reports.

ICE Scotland director, Hannah Smith, said:

“Our Emerging Engineers Award attracts entrants from the brightest and best developing talent in Scotland’s civil engineering sector. I’m excited to see what innovative approaches, solutions and ideas our 2020 entrants showcase and wish all our candidates the best of luck.”

The ICE Scotland winner will be shortlisted for the UK Emerging Engineers Award Final where the prestigious Institution Medal and cash prizes can be won. To enter, you need to complete the EEA entry form, attach your synopsis and email to: [email protected] no later than 17.00 on Monday 11 May 2020.
