Get ready for the Engineers Ireland Excellence Awards 2017! 
 
Engineering organisations throughout Ireland encouraged to celebrate achievements and skill
 
 Entries are now being sought for the 2017 Engineers Ireland Excellence Awards, held in association with ESB.
 
Now in its 8th year, the Engineers Ireland Excellence Awards are presented annually in recognition of the achievements of engineers who have demonstrated exceptional engineering skills through their work. As well as identifying leaders within the engineering industry, the awards provide an opportunity to showcase and celebrate the invaluable contribution the engineering profession makes to society and applaud the innovation and quality of work produced by engineers both at home and abroad.
 
Categories open for entry include the flagship Engineering Project of the Year, sponsored by Transport Infrastructure Ireland; the Geoscience Ireland Award, sponsored by Geoscience Ireland; the Local Authority Engineering Initiative Award;  the Technical Innovation Award and special awards in the fields of Heritage and Conservation and Engineering Education.
 
Each Regional branch, Engineering division and Society committee of Engineers Ireland are also encouraged to nominate their best presentation for the 2016 – 2017 season in the Best Presentation Award category, co-sponsored by Griffiths and Armour and Beale and Company. The Best Presentation Award recognises individuals who have contributed to the engineering profession by delivering outstanding technical presentations to our members during the 2016 – 2017 lecture season.
 
Members are also encouraged to nominate an Irish engineer that you know who has worked or is working on a project outside of Ireland that clearly contributes to society for the International Engineer of the Year Award. Sponsored by ESB International, this award aims to acknowledge the contribution of the Irish engineering diaspora by recognising the excellent work of Irish engineers around the world.
 
Encouraging organisations from all disciplines of engineering to enter, Caroline Spillane, Director General, Engineers Ireland, said: “We are pleased to announce that the 2017 Engineers Ireland Excellence Awards are now open for entry. In addition to identifying leaders within the Irish engineering industry, the awards honour the pioneering and innovative work that is carried out by Irish engineers both at home and abroad. I would encourage engineers and engineering organisations to celebrate their achievements and submit an entry to the 2017 Engineers Ireland Excellence Awards today”.
 
The deadline for entry to the 2017 awards is 12 noon on Monday 11 September.
