Congratulations to our Fellows recognised in the Australian Day Honours list for their amazing contributions to science, technology, and engineering.
Eight Fellows of the Australian Academy of Technology and Engineering have been named in the Australia Day honours.
The Fellows were among 1040 outstanding Australians to be awarded for their achievements and contributions to the nation.
Only seven Australians were recognised with the Companion of the Order of Australia, and three of those are Fellows of our Academy.
Of the 732 awards in the General Division of the Order of Australia, the highest ever percentage (47 per cent) are for women.
Academy President, Professor Hugh Bradlow, said, “These awards indicate the range of significant contributions and demonstrated excellence in STEM fields by ATSE Fellows.
“I would especially like to congratulate former ATSE President Dr Alan Finkel on his inclusion in the COVID-19 Honour Roll as recognition of his valuable work during the pandemic.
“I know every member of the Fellowship will join me in congratulating the eight Fellows honoured on Wednesday.”
