For many years, The Pump Centre has encouraged and supported the development of Young Engineers in the UK who work with any aspect of pumps and associated systems. One of the ways it does this is by making an award to those whose level of achievement and development is recognised as being above average for their position.
There are three categories for the awards: Professional, Technician and Apprentice.
- 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.
- 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. They should spend 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.
- In the Apprentice Young Engineer category, the candidate must be 22 years of age or less on the 1st March 2020 and have proven engineering experience as appropriate to their field of work and primarily be working in the workshop or in the field on hands-on based tasks.
We are really looking forward to the 2020 Awards, which will be presented each year during the Pump Centre's Water Equipment Show Pre-Event Dinner, held at the Telford International Centre. The 2020 awards will take place on the evening of Wednesday 13th May 2020.
