• 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
