Ryan won the crowned Graduate of the Year award, beating off competition from either other talented graduates. The entrants had to give a four minute presentation themed on how collaboration can be used to improve buildings and building performance.
“We are used to seeing the absolute cream of the UK’s engineering talent at these awards, but the standard was particularly high this year and the bar was raised yet again,” said CIBSE president, Nick Mead.
“This year’s new graduate engineers will be going into a very different world from 20 years ago, and must address some of the most difficult challenges of recent times such as sustainability and climate change. As a result it is more important than ever that we support them at an early stage, to give them the best possible starts to their lives as engineers.”
CIBSE, ASHRAE and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers support the event, with sponsorship from Andrews Water Heaters, Ruskin Air Management, Schneider Electric, and CIBSE patrons.
