Fiatech CETI Award Online Nomination Form

What is CETI?

The Celebration of Engineering & Technology Innovation (CETI) awards were established in 2006 by Fiatech in order to recognize excellence in the fields of technology research, development, and implementation.

The CETI awards are given annually, at the Fiatech Technology Showcase to showcase significant achievements of both organizations and individuals. Organizations are honored for developing, discovering, or implementing new and emerging technologies. Individuals are recognized for singular and notable efforts that promote a greater understanding of technology and its effectiveness in improving planning, design, engineering, construction, and delivery and startups in the capital projects industry.
