Nominations for the Pump Centre Young Engineer Awards 2020 will open on 1st September 2019​​.​

The Young Engineer awards are presented in three categories: Professional, Technician and Apprentice.

To qualify for nomination in the Professional Young Engineer category the candidate must be 28 years of age or less on the 1st March 2020 and have a formal qualification in an Engineering or related subject. The candidate will be working in a professional role with responsibilities and experience commensurate with that of a professional engineer.

To qualify for nomination in the Technician Young Engineer category the candidate must be 24 years of age or less on the 1st March 2020 and have proven experience on engineering projects as appropriate to their field of work.  The candidate will likely be spending most of their time working outside the workshop in a less hands-on role, have a level of responsibility commensurate with that of a Technician Engineer and possibly be working towards a formal qualification in Engineering or a related subject.

To qualify for nomination in the Apprentice Young Engineer category the candidate must be 22 years of age or less on the 1st March 2020 and have proven experience on engineering projects as appropriate to their field of work and primarily be working in the workshop or in the field on hands-on based tasks.

In each category, the selection process will comprise two stages. The first stage comprises an assessment of the nomination forms received to draw up a list of finalists. Nominators and Nominees should therefore ensure that they complete ALL sections of the nomination form and include sufficient information to allow the judges to accurately assess their applications. The nomination forms will be the only thing that the judges will have available to them to draw up a short-list of finalists. It should be noted that marks are awarded for each completed section of the form. It is therefore essential that all sections are completed.

In the second stage, all finalists will be invited for interview and to give a presentation. The outcome of this process will be the selection of the Award winners. More details of the stage two process will be supplied to the finalists.
