New Engineering awards and prizes for top-performing students

Good news, Engineering students! La Trobe University has introduced four new prizes that you are in the running to win.

Three of these prizes are courtesy of business CMP Consulting Group, who partnered with La Trobe this year on a series of online lectures about the Australian engineering environment.

And in memory of Matthew O’Neill, pioneering La Trobe student and staff member, a fourth prize for Work Integrated Learning will also be awarded.

That’s plenty of opportunity for top-performing students to receive $1,000 in recognition of their academic achievement. More information about each prize is below.
