Applications for the Engineer of the Year 2021 contest continues to be accepted in Tatarstan. The contest is held with the support from the Tatarstan President in order to raise public awareness, encourage and spread positive experience of the best republic’s engineers, and increase the attractiveness of engineering work among young people. This is the second time the contest is being held; more than 250 applications from various republic’s enterprises were submitted for the first time.
The contest has three age-based divisions: Future Engineers (engineering students); Youth, Success, Perspective (engineers under the age of 35 years inclusive); Experience, Achievements, Competence (engineers over the age of 35 years).
The contest is held in 12 categories broken down by republic’s industries and will involve 2 stages. The correspondence stage is the application collection campaign and the work of the contest’s expert commission on selecting applications for participation in the on-site stage. The on-site stage is a two-day travelling workshop, which includes master classes, training, testing, and project defences.
The contest winners will be awarded during a festive ceremony with the participation of the Tatarstan President at the end of the year.
The contest may be attended by university students receiving an engineering degree and engineers already working at Tatarstan enterprises: design engineers, production engineers contributing to the development of production processes, lines, etc.
