Paul Hardy, our Chief Executive Officer has been awarded Monash University’s Department of Civil Engineering Alumnus of the Year for 2013 and is again recognised as one of Australia’s 100 most influential engineers.

Each year, the Department of Civil Engineering at Monash University holds a combined alumni and departmental dinner which includes the presentation of the 'Alumnus of the Year' award. The award recognises alumni of the Department of Civil Engineering who have made a significant contribution to the engineering profession and the community.

The Faculty of Engineering at Monash University is the largest in Australia and is renowned worldwide for the quality of its teaching, research and the calibre of graduates. Paul is a Member of the Industry Advisory Committee for the Department of Civil Engineering at Monash University, and has been a practicing engineer for over 35 years.

“I was humbled and honoured to receive this award from my peers at the Monash Department of Civil Engineering. My entire professional career has been devoted to the practice of engineering and the bedrock of this exciting journey was at Monash University,” said Paul.

In the 2013 Engineers Australia Top 100 list of Australia's most influential engineers, alumni from Monash University featured strongly. Dr Alan Finkel AM, Chancellor of Monash University was one of eight engineering alumni named in this year’s list. Other alumni includes, Stephen Durkin, CEO of Engineers Australia, Dr Peter Lee, Vice-Chancellor of Southern Cross University, Peter Coleman, Managing Director of Woodside, Russell Scott, president and chairman of the Institute of Chemical Engineers, Michael Batchelor, Chief Executive, Aecom ANZ and Ross Hitt, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, SMEC, along with Paul who appeared for the fourth consecutive year.

“As engineers, we deliver outputs that make a genuine difference to communities and we can ensure that we leave the communities better off than when we started. This recognition by the Department is as much for the dynamic and exceptional team I work with at Aurecon as it is for me,” said Paul.

In receiving the Alumnus of the Year Award, Paul joins a list of distinguished Faculty of Engineering alumni that includes, Professor Tony Wong (2012), Professor Gary Codner (2011), Professor William Young (2010) and Dr. Adrian Williams (2009).
