Entries open for 2012 British Engineering Excellence Awards

Entries open for 2012 British Engineering Excellence Awards

Entries are now being accepted for the 2012 British Engineering Excellence Awards – Do you have what it takes to win?

Now in their fourth year, the Awards are designed to celebrate those UK companies and individuals that have demonstrated the skills, invention and dedication to succeed and compete on an international stage.

Categories for the Awards run the gamut of engineering design and include:
• Consultancy of the Year
• Design Engineer of the Year
• Design Team of the Year
• Green Product of the Year
• New Product of the Year (Electronic)
• New Product of the Year (Mechanical)
• Small Company of the Year
• Start Up of the Year
• Young Design Engineer of the Year

In addition, 2012 will see the introduction of a new Award for the Most Innovative Use of Materials, as well as including the British Engineering Excellence Grand Prix (which is selected from among the winning entries) and the discretionary Judges' Special Award.

In order to ensure that companies of all sizes can compete fairly, the Judges will take into consideration such factors as team size, project budget, project design cycle time, the regulatory environment, the competitive nature of the target market, the materials and technology selected by the design team and the attention to environmental issues.

Entries for the British Engineering Excellence Awards close on 31 July 2012. The entries will be judged by an expert panel chaired by Eric Wilkinson, Chief Operating Officer of Cambridge Consultants. The Awards will be presented at a lunch event, being held at 8 Northumberland Avenue, London on 25 October.

If you believe you have what it takes to win in any of these categories – or know of a product, company or individual that does – entry forms, detailed entry criteria and additional information on the Awards categories can be found at
