Two Heriot-Watt Dubai Campus Architectural Engineering Dubai students are set for recognition at the prestigious Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) Young Engineers Awards 2016, shortly before they graduate in November.
Ann Elezabeth Johny has already been awarded the CIBSE President's Prize: Undergraduate Award 2016 for demonstrating outstanding excellence in her final year project. Meanwhile Samima Saqib has been shortlisted as a finalist for the CIBSE ASHRAE Graduate of the Year Award 2016, which is one of the industry's most sought after accolades.
This prestigious annual awards scheme has brought the CIBSE ASHRAE Graduate of the Year award to prominence and is now in its 21st year. The CIBSE Young Engineers Awards aim to recognise and reward the innovative thinking, hard work and skills of graduate engineers, whilst also showcasing and championing employers, large and small, who are committed to developing and encouraging young talent.
The winners of both awards will be announced at the annual Young Engineers Awards ceremony, taking place on 13 October at the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) in London.
Dr Hassam N. Chaudhry, Assistant Professor in Building Services Engineering at the Dubai Campus, said, “These are exactly the outcomes we expect from our students after a year of dedication and hard-work. Both students will be traveling to London in October to receive their prizes at the final awards ceremony and I believe they and the university are fully deserving of the recognition they are receiving.”
