Sir George Julius Medal

About this Award

In 1976 this medal replaced the Mechanical Engineering Prize, which had been established in 1955. The medal perpetuates the memory of Sir George Julius who practised in Sydney as a consulting engineer in the mechanical/electrical field. One of his best-known achievements was the automatic totalisator before the days of electronics. From 1925-1940 he was Chairman of the Standards Association of Australia, and from 1926 – 1945 he was Chairman of CSIRO.
