Madew praises the awards for bringing the Australian engineering sector together and uplifting impressive achievements that “break new ground”.

“These endeavours change how we see the world, live our lives, work, and think creatively,” says Madew. 

Awards celebrating those old and new to the industry 

Local celebration events in September will determine a pool of finalists to represent their division at the national gala in Brisbane on 21 November. The award categories honour both engineers established in the field and up-and-coming professionals. 

Projects awards acknowledge the teams behind Australia’s top engineering projects that demonstrate a penchant for technical excellence, innovation and camaraderie. Nominations for the projects awards close on 31 May.

The emerging designer of the year awards champion impressive early career engineers who show immense potential and astuteness in their work, whereas, the engineer of the year awards celebrate the outstanding efforts of engineering professionals who consistently showcase exemplary technical, professional and community service engineering standards. 

The achievement awards honour the achievements of professionals at all career stages and across Engineers Australia’s colleges and vast engineering community. Additionally, longstanding service and contribution will be acknowledged under the distinguished career awards. Nominations for the people awards close on 2 July. 

An impressive precedent to follow

Last year’s awards demonstrated the vast talent and skill of the industry – Murdoch University’s new community-centric learning space Boola Katitjin, by Melbourne-based engineering firm Aurecon, took out Project of the Year’. The project also won the Higher Education and Research award at last year’s World Architecture Festival

Winners receive tickets to awards events, a profile in the awards showcase publication, ongoing promotion from Engineers Australia Excellence Awards and discounted tickets for events and professional development opportunities.
