Nortek is pleased to announce the winners for the 2016 Nortek Day competition!

After a tight competition, Nortek has decided to award the 2016 Nortek Day competition not to just one, but two globally distinguished universities: Griffith University in Queensland, Australia, and Texas A&M University in the southern United States.

Griffith University’s School of Engineering will be hosting the Nortek Day at its campus on Australia’s Gold Coast. The School of Engineering has been involved in a broad range of projects throughout several application areas, such as coastal engineering and management, oceanography, and water resources engineering.

Our host at Texas A&M University (TAMU) will be the newly-created Department of Ocean Engineering, TAMU’s first cross-campus department covering both the College Station and Galveston campuses. The Department offers world-class Bachelors, Masters and PhD programs in coastal and ocean engineering areas. Both host institutions are veterans in field and laboratory measurements using Nortek products.

Special thanks – and stay tuned

Many other applications were submitted and highly considered. Nortek would like to give a special honorable mention to the fantastic video submission by the Coastal Engineering and Oceanography Department at Brazil’s Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. We are currently in discussion on how to support their program and field work with the new Signature line.

Please join Nortek in congratulating the two 2016 Nortek Day host institutions! Stay tuned for pictures from the events – and for next year's Nortek Day competition announcement during autumn 2016.
