Can your company meet the BEEAs challenge?

Engineers solve problems; it's as simple as that. Some solutions are elegant, some inspired, but the vast majority are high quality designs which apply appropriate technology to solve the problem at hand.

During the past six years of the British Engineering Excellence Awards, we've seen winning entries ranging in size from chip designs to pipe laying systems, with the Grand Prix – the best of the best – awarded to a kinetic energy recovery system, an engineer who designed a system to save water on a massive scale, a marine communications company and a diesel engine crankcase ventilator. It just shows the breadth of the UK’s engineering capability.

The great thing from our point of view is that every year the quality of entries improves – and we don't think 2015 should be any different. So think about things like the degree of innovation you’re applying and the effect teamwork has on getting your design to market. Ask yourself whether your company has a success story to tell. And if you do, then enter this year's British Engineering Excellence Awards.

The Awards are not a rubber stamping exercise; we have high quality independent judges and the companies that make it to the shortlist will have had to impress them.

Whether your company is involved in electronics or engineering design or whether it works in both sectors, we encourage you to enter the Awards – there's a range of categories to choose from and all the information you'll need is available on this website.
