Faculty of Engineering Student Service Awards
Established in 2010, the UNSW Faculty of Engineering Student Service Awards reward and encourage exceptional and outstanding service by students for the student community.
There are up to three awards given each year – depending on merit. Award winners receive an official certificate recognizing the achievement, an entry on the UNSW Supplementary Transcript, and prize money (in 2015, the Awards are valued at $1,000 each).
Who is eligible?
Faculty of Engineering Students – All students enrolled in a degree program within the UNSW Faculty of Engineering are eligible for Award nomination. Students enrolled in the combined Bachelor of Engineering / Bachelor of Laws and the combined Bachelor of Science (Computer Science) / Bachelor of Digital Media are also eligible.
Teams/Groups – Teams and groups are also eligible for nomination, but only one award will be presented to the team as a whole. The team or group must consist of usually up to three students (mainly from the Faculty of Engineering) who have worked together to implement or achieve an outstanding service. Team/group leaders can be nominated as an individual.
Previous Award Winners –Recipients of a Faculty Student Service Award (Individual or Team) are not eligible for nomination in the following year. For example, the recipient of a 2013 Award may not be nominated until nominations open for the 2015 Awards.
