The Faculty of Engineering and Information Science’s contribution to delivering excellence for the University was recognised recently through the 2020 Vice-Chancellor Awards.
The annual Vice-Chancellor Awards acknowledge the outstanding efforts of UOW staff who work tirelessly towards UOW’s vision and strategic goals, celebrating their commitment to research, education and advancing health and safety, community, and diversity.
The awards also support the University’s values of a workforce with strong performance expectations, recognition and celebration of initiative and enterprise, and staff who are recognised and appreciated for their contribution.
