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 2015 has been no different.
