A Hugglescote-based Apprentice Civil Engineer has been named a finalist in the East Midlands’ round of the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) Emerging Engineers Award, missing out narrowly to tough competition.

Danny Hinds of Groby in Leicestershire, is a fifth-year apprentice with M-EC Consulting Development Engineers, one of the UK’s leading engineering and environmental consultancies and is studying at Stephenson College in Coalville.

After being shortlisted for his written paper entitled: ‘The Development and Sustainable Structural Design Toolkit for Highway Junctions’, Danny then presented to a regional judging panel in May and was named a Regional Award Finalist for the Emerging Engineer Award category at the ICE East Midlands Gala Dinner in Nottingham in June.

Danny said of his achievement: “It’s a real honour to have been selected as a finalist in the East Midlands round. Huge congratulations to the winner Tanya Donkin and I hope they are successful in the national competition.”

Eddie Mewies, managing director for M-EC added: “Danny joined the company in 2014 and has come a long way since his first days with us here at M-EC. We’re very proud of his achievements and to be a finalist in an ICE competition is no mean feat.”

Winners of the Emerging Engineer Award receive £1,500 cash, the Institution Medal presented at the ICE Annual Awards Ceremony later in the year and the potential publication of the winning paper in the ICE Journal.
