The British Engineering Excellence Awards (BEEAs) for 2017 are now open for entries.
The BEEAs demonstrate the breadth and vitality of the UK’s engineering and innovation capabilities. Since the British Engineering Excellence Awards were launched in 2009, the winning entries have ranged in size from chip designs to earth moving vehicles, 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, in 2016, a young medical company developing imaging technology to improve outcomes for cancer patients.
The BEEAs 2017 has also secured continued support from its headline sponsor, Cambridge Consultants, Gallery sponsor, RS Components and category sponsors Maxon Motor and Premier EDA Solutions. They are joined this year by category sponsors Goodfellow (Cambridge), John Guest, LG Motion/MiniTec and Rutland Plastics.
The BEEAs reward companies who have shown innovation in design within the last year and the design engineers who made those innovations possible. The Awards also recognise outstanding performances from engineering consultancies, start-ups and small companies.
