Engineering Excellence

An ACEC New York hallmark for over 50 years, the Engineering Excellence Awards gala — the Academy Awards” of the consulting engineering industry—is held annually in the spring to honor member firms for design achievements of superior skill and ingenuity.

Each year, over 60 firms submit projects that are judged on a rigorous set of criteria, which includes complexity, innovation and value to society. In addition to celebrating among peers, the EEA helps to publicize the many significant contributions consulting engineers make to the built environment throughout the world.

Entries are now being accepted for the 2021 Engineering Excellence Awards!

Official Statement on the 2020 Engineering Excellence Gala


Due to the directive from the Office of the Governor of New York State, which dictates that " with 500 or more individuals in attendance to be cancelled or postponed," the Engineering Excellence Gala, originally scheduled for April 4 in New York City, will be postponed. A new date will be announced once confirmed. Current ticket purchases will stand until a new date is selected. In the unlikely event that the gala is cancelled, a refund will be provided for all attendees. If current ticket holders request a refund at this time of postponement, a full refund will be provided. We sincerely thank our attendees for their patience at this time.


The safety and well-being of not just the engineering industry but all New Yorkers are essential to the core mission of ACEC New York. We will continue to monitor the continuously developing situation regarding COVID-19 and will continue to act accordingly.
