The award categories include Academic Research Awards; Young Engineers Award; Public Sector Awards; Private Sector Awards; External/Associate Awards; Media Awards and ICT Infrastructure Awards.
Under the theme: ?Design, Build and Construct, Let us Think Forever?, the event is expected to attract seasoned Engineers and other affiliate professional bodies to reward them for their works.
Ing. Magnus Lincoln Quarshie, GhIE President, explained that many engineers and non-engineer professionals working in both the public and private sectors of Ghana continued to play important roles in shaping the environment and promoting sustainable development.
He said: ?These professionals need to be appreciated for their efforts and contributions in maintaining the integrity of good engineering practice amidst competing development interests and challenging situations.
?It?s against this backdrop that the Ghana Institution of Engineers has instituted this award ceremony to reward deserving Engineers?.
Both individuals and corporate bodies could pick nomination forms and enter for awards, he said.
The GhIE is an autonomous professional body responsible for ensuring quality standards for engineers.
