WATCH: 2019 Engineers of Tomorrow winner interviews

IFSEC Global catches up with the winners of the highly respected 2019 Engineers of Tomorrow competition, which is designed to recognise and showcase the talents of the next generation of fire and security installers from across the UK.

The competition helps to raise the profile of engineering apprenticeships and the opportunities they represent within the sector. Taking place at IFSEC and FIREX International each year, winners of regional heats compete in a live installation challenge at the show, where over 34,000 visitors are in attendance.
