The aim of the award is to recognise excellence in the field of Electrical Power Engineering and to encourage students to consider a career in the Electric Power Industry, in the areas of generation, transmission, distribution, retail and end use of electric energy.


The nominated candidate will receive:

  • A framed certificate provided by EESA;
  • A cheque;
  • One-year subscription to EESA; and
  • A conditional invitation to EECON.


The nominated winner should be selected on the following criteria:

  • Academic Achievement: High academic achievement in electrical engineering in areas of study directly applicable to the Electric Power Industry (EPI); and
  • Project: Best project (or thesis or similar) by an electrical engineering student with direct relevance to the Electric Power Industry (EPI).
  • Preference should be given to applications where the fields of study or project are specifically directed toward the requirements of the Electric Power Industry; however consideration should also be given to students with studies or projects which could be applicable to a wide range of industries where the student can show applicability to the Electric Power Industry.


The nominee for the award must:

  • be an Australian citizen or permanent resident;
  • be eligible to be a student member of Engineers Australia and EESA.


Your School is invited to make a selection of an appropriate student based on the above criteria and nominate a single submission for this award. The application should include:
