Engineers reject spelling test …
The intelligentsia of The engineering world gathered again for what has turned out to be an annual event in The CIBSE YEN calendar – the Virtual Quiz.
This year CIBSE YEN Chair, Ryan Loney, co-hosted the event in partnership with ASHRAE YEA Chair, Conor Deane. Participants came from virtually everywhere – including James Byrne from Killybeggs in Co Donegal – to enjoy the Saint Patrick’s themed occasion.
The format for the quiz was similar to last year’s with 71 questions and a complex array of useless knowledge and basic engineering fundamentals, the latter of which again proved The more challenging.
The questions were multiple choice, following complaints last year that “it shouldn’t be a spelling test”, an aspect that young engineers seem to struggle [sic] with. Spot prizes were thrown in to make it a little more interesting with a number of bonus rounds.
