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 four 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 2013 should be any different. So think about topics
such as 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
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
How will your company measure up?
