ICE Mentor of the Year nominations open

The ICE is once again opening up nominations for outstanding mentors of young civil engineers.

The annual Mentor of the Year Award (MOYA) recognises employers, lectures and others who have greatly assisted the development of graduate and student civil engineers. It is run by the Graduate and Students Network (GSNet), which represents the graduate and student members of the ICE.

Deputy chair for the GSNet Kieran Owens commented: “The Mentor of the Year Award recognises those employers, managers, colleagues or lecturers that go above and beyond what is required of them to support and encourage the professional development of graduate and student civil engineers.”

Students and graduates wanting to put forward their mentor for the accolade need to submit a one-page summary of why the person in question should be considered. Shortlisted mentors will be interviewed by the GSNet judging panel in September.

ICE director of membership David Lloyd-Roach said the award was a way for students and graduates to show their appreciation publically. “This award is driven entirely by ICE’s graduate and student membership, who wanted to put the well deserved spotlight on those civil engineers that strive to develop and support their younger colleagues or students.”

The winner will be announced at a presentation ceremony in October.
