This year we were delighted to welcome our winners and their guests to the presentation dinner for the 19th Design & Technology Association Excellence Awards. The Awards were  held at IET London, 2 Savoy Place, London WC2R 0BL on Friday 22nd March 2019 hosted by the D&T Association and the Institution of Engineering Technology. Dan Sibert from Foster & Partners gave an inspiring after dinner talk about his career in architecture. The awards gave professional recognition to individuals nominated by their colleagues for their unique work in design and technology education across the categories.
