• Engineering Excellence Awards

  •  ACEC's annual Engineering Excellence Awards (EEA) competition pays tribute to exemplary Member Firm achievements from throughout the world. Since 1980, Utah engineering firms have entered their most innovative projects and studies in ACEC Utah's annual Engineering Excellence Awards program (EEA)—"the Academy Awards of the engineering industry"—which honors the year's most outstanding engineering accomplishments. Projects that are winners at state level EEA competitions are eligible for ACEC's national EEA competition, now celebrating its 50th year.

    Each year a distinguished panel of judges representing a cross section of industry, government, academia and media, assemble to rank the submissions on engineering excellence. Projects are rated on the basis of uniqueness and innovative applications; future value to the engineering profession; perception by the public; social, economic, and sustainable development considerations; complexity; and successful fulfillment of client/owner's needs, including schedule and budget

    Submission information for the 2021 Engineering Excellence Awards will be posted here soon. Because of COVID-19 event protocols the annual awards event has been moved to early 2021. The 2021 submission deadline for projects will be December 4th. Plan on celebrating the winning projects at the 2021 Engineering Excellence Awards Banquet February 25, 2021.
