ICE invites submissions for WFEO awards

The ICE is inviting submissions for the annual World Federation of Engineering Organisations (WFEO) awards. 

The awards recognise excellence in engineering for both individual and group projects.

There are four awards in the fields of construction, education, and contribution to the industry:

  • Hassib J Sabbagh Award for Engineering Construction Excellence: The award will recognise noteworthy contributions to the implementation of a project of construction, development and planning of rural roads, mass-transit systems and harbours. The winning team or engineer will receive $10,000 (£6,550).The award is open to projects completed in the two to five years to 31 March 2009.
  • Said Khoury Award for Engineering Construction Excellence: The award will recognise noteworthy contribution to the implementation of a project of construction, development and planning of drinking water and irrigation infrastructure, water management, water treatment, water storage and transportation.

The winning team or engineer will receive £6,550. The award is opening to projects completed in the two to five years to 31 March 2009.

  • WFEO Medal of Excellence in Engineering Education: The recipient of this award will be chosen based on his or her noteworthy contributions to the improvement of engineering education. 
  • WFEO Medal of Engineering Excellence: The accolade will be awarded based on the applicant’s noteworthy contributions to the practice, theory or public status of engineering.

Founded in 1968, WFEO brings together national engineering organisations from over 90 nations and represents 15M engineers. The ICE is UK national member to the WFEO.

In December last year the ICE was represented at WFEO’s General Assembly meetings in Brazil. The WFEO meetings covered globally significant topics including environmental impact, the role of women in the industry and the wider issues in the energy arena. Participating at the meetings provided excellent opportunities for the ICE to discuss and progress its international operations and strategy, particularly in the areas of international development and capacity building.

The WFEO awards will be presented at this year’s General Assembly in Kuwait in November.

As a WFEO national member the ICE can only submit one or two nominations to each of the awards. If you would like to suggest an individual or team for one of the awards please send details to Ruth Dennett at ruth.dennett@ice.org.uk before 30 June.
