Showcasing exceptional engineering talent

CIBSE is the leading professional body for building services engineers and those associated with the sustainable and built environment. Its annual awards scheme brings together the CIBSE Graduate of the Year Award and the CIBSE Employer of the Year Award.

The prestigious awards recognise the innovative thinking, hard work and skills of graduate engineers, whilst also championing employers who are committed to encouraging young talent.

“With these Young Engineers Awards we recognise and showcase the exceptional engineering talent we have in the industry,” said CIBSE president, Lynne Jack.

“Equally importantly, the awards shine a spotlight on those employers whose progressive strategies for recruiting, nurturing and empowering young people have provided a suitable environment for our young engineers to flourish. Without companies willing to champion and support those new to our industry, we cannot hope to achieve our targets.”
