Countdown to BEEAs week

​There are just two more weeks until the winners of this year’s British Engineering Excellence Awards are announced. The week of March 22-26 will see the winners announced in full.

The British Engineering Excellence Awards celebrate the best of design engineering in the UK from 2019-2020 and while this has been an unusual time, and this ceremony reflects that, the organisers have been determined to ensure that excellence was recognised regardless.

Rather than the much-missed physical ceremony, the Awards this year will be hosted live on the BEEAs website and later on the websites of Eureka! and New Electronics.
