The Civil Engineering Foundation hosts a number of events throughout the year including our Annual General Meeting, seminars and lectures. We also participate in the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technologies' annual Research Conversazione and career fairs.

AGM and Dinner

The Annual General Meeting of the Foundation is held in the first quarter of each year and is usually followed by an informal dinner featuring a special guest speaker. This event provides guests the chance to meet and network with key staff from the School of Civil Engineering and fellow Foundation Members.

Seminars and Lectures

The Foundation's seminars and lectures are an opportunity for academics and renowned industry practitioners to share their experiences in a specialised field. Previous guest speakers have included Vice Chairman of the EU Transport Group Professor Andrew McNaughton, the University's Emeritus Professor Harry Poulos, Professor Bruce Ellingwood from the Georgia Institute of Technology and Vivianne Kollevris, Blast and Security Consultant at Arup.

In addition, our Governor's Lecture series has, since 2009, provided a unique opportunity for our Governor Members to present the work of their organisations to our students, staff and the broader Foundation community. This series has featured industry leaders from companies like GHD, Lend Lease, Arup, Leighton Holdings and Aurecon.
