ABOUT
AEEA 2018

Engineers Australia’s Australian Engineering Excellence Awards (AEEA) recognise outstanding achievement in engineering and the invaluable contribution engineering makes to the economy, community and the environment.

The AEEA inspires 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.

To enter the AEEA, entrants are required to submit project nominations at the relevant local level, depending on the project’s location.

Local Excellence Award winners automatically move forward as AEEA Finalists.

AEEA Finalists are judged and Australian Engineering Excellence Award winners are announced at a gala dinner during the Australia Engineering Conference.
