The New Zealand Geotechnical Society Student Awards are presented to recognise and encourage student participation in the fields of geotechnical engineering and engineering geology, and to introduce our best student talent to potential employers.
For these awards, students of a recognised tertiary institution in New Zealand prepare an A1 size poster that clearly and concisely presents their work on any aspect or topic in the fields of geotechnical engineering or engineering geology. The posters are judged on technical content, layout, and overall poster appeal and ranked by a panel nominated by the management committee of the NZGS.
The winners this year were:
1st Place: Yuri Wong
(PhD student, University of Auckland)
2nd Place: Charles Mangos
(PMEngGeol student, University of Canterbury)
3rd Place: Ethan Flintoft
(BEHons student, Waikato University)
The awards will be presented at the next branch meetings.
