EngineerAid Chief Executive wins "Young Engineer" Award!


In a star-studded awards ceremony at York Racecourse, Graeme Towers was awarded the IChemE's Young Engineer of the Year award, sponsored by GSK for his work at EngineerAid.

Graeme became Chief Executive of the charity in December 2008 when he oversaw the launch of its new forum-based Ask The Expert system, which vastly improves the efficiency with which EngineerAid can deal with new enquiries.

Since then he has dealt with the daily running of the charity, and gathering new projects and volunteers.

The IChemE's young engineer award recognises the individual who best demonstrates his/her achievements and tangible application of chemical, biochemical and/or process engineering skills to address important economic, environmental or social issues. All entrants must have been born on or after 1 January 1979.

Dr David Brown from the IChemE said: “We received a record number of entries this year from over 20 countries. Winning an IChemE award is an outstanding achievement and I congratulate Graeme on his success.”
