Prizes and awards

Endeavour project students will be eligible for one or more of the prizes and awards presented at our Endeavour Awards Night.

This exciting event takes place after the Endeavour Exhibition on Thursday 24 October. The Best Project Awards are presented to the top project in each discipline, while other prize and award winners require a separate application to be eligible. There are many fantastic prizes and awards on offer and we strongly encourage you to apply.

Endeavour sponsored and industry-specific awards

All students participating in Endeavour are eligible for awards generously provided by our industry sponsors and donors.

Best Project Awards

The recipients of the Best Project Award will be acknowledged at the Endeavour Awards Night.

The winning projects will receive $2,000 to be split amongst team members evenly. Funds for the awards have been generously bestowed from the Melbourne School of Engineering Foundation.

The Melbourne School of Engineering Foundation provides ongoing scholarships and awards based on academic merit and need. The Foundation Board is focused on generating financial and community support through relationships with industry, alumni and other groups that are interested in supporting the student experience at the Melbourne School of Engineering.

Best Projects Awards will be judged by University of Melbourne academics to determine the winners. Projects will be measured on performance throughout the development of the project and the quality of presentation at the Endeavour Exhibition.

Best Project Awards will be presented across the following disciplines (these disciplines are subject to change due to student’s participation within each area).

  • Best Project in Biomedical Engineering
  • Best Project in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering
  • Best Project in Computing and Information Systems
  • Best Project in Electrical and Electronic Engineering
  • Best Project in Infrastructure Engineering
  • Best Project in Mechanical Engineering
  • Best Project in Mechatronic Engineering
