We are delighted to see yet another year of high standards in the Engineers of Tomorrow Competition with 160 entries across the two events!

Despite a disrupted 2020 due to the pandemic, the Engineers of Tomorrow Competition has continued to go from strength to strength, with a total of 160 high-standard entries this year! The competition encompasses two separate events – one for electronic security installers and the other for installers of fire safety devices. It aims to help tackle the current skills gap in the Fire & Security sector. 

Congratulations to all those below who have made it into the next stage of the process! The regional winners will now compete at the next stage of the competition, the National Qualifiers this month, to go through to the National Finals (details to be confirmed). Winners of the Security and Fire Competitions will be announced at the Security and Fire Excellence Awards, taking place on 23 November 2021.

We are proud stakeholders of this event and enjoy showing our commitment year on year to help raise the profile of engineering apprenticeships. This year, we donated equipment to be used in the heats alongside fellow sponsors Hikvision and Texecom.
