AEEA 2020

COVID-19 Update

31 March 2020

Due to the evolving developments of the COVID-19 situation and in line with government advice, Engineers Australia (EA) is reviewing the delivery of the Australian Engineering Excellence Awards 2020.

We are committed to continue with the Awards program, but recognise that the announcement and presentation of these awards will be delivered in a different way.

It is important that we continue to recognise engineering achievements and we have some exciting and creative ideas to bring this recognition to life.

The health and safety of our staff, members and participants has been our key consideration in making this decision.

We thank you for your support. You will hear back from us in the coming weeks with further details.


Final submissions close 30 June 2020.

The AEEA inspire and encourage engineering distinction through teamwork, innovation, and technical excellence.

The awards also provide tangible benefits for entrants through a range of promotional activities to fellow peers and wider industry.

Excellence, distinction, merit, perfection and quality are the characteristics that winning entries exhibit.

The AEEA is an integrated program resulting in one winner receiving the Sir William Hudson award at a National level. AEEA awards will be presented in each Division with one winner in each division announced as the division finalist for the Sir William Hudson award.

To enter the AEEA, entrants are required to submit project nominations at the relevant local level, depending on the project’s location (or where the majority of the work was carried out).
