The Institution of Engineering and Technology – E.C. Parkinson Prize
$500 + Certificate
The Prize recognises outstanding academic achievement in the area of manufacturing. The Sydney Division of the Institution of Manufacturing of Engineers donated a sum of money in 1964 which was to be used to establish a prize for the purpose of perpetuating the memory of the late E.C. Parkinson, a distinguished production engineer and, for many years, a senior executive of the AWA Company. Since 1970 the prize has been awarded to a student of the University.
