Each year the Auckland University of Technology (AUT) hosts an awards night to recognise and celebrate their top Graduands. An evening that HERA is proud to be a part of!
The awards night was held last week in December, and albeit the ceremony had to be held online this year, it was a very special occasion for the winners, the staff who helped them succeed, and the many supportive family and friends.
Recognising and celebrating top academic achievement is an area HERA strongly resonates with.
We were happy to sponsor the award prize for the AUT Top Māori or Pacific Graduand award in Bachelor of Engineering (Hons). This award recognises the contribution made to improving the capacities of Māori and Pacific peoples, through academic achievement.
We believe having genuine interactions with young Māori and Pacific and their unique views on the world is very important for the future of our industry. We want to actively extend our industry’s capacity by creating a more diverse and attractive industry that Kiwi’s work with – and for.
A big congratulations to the winner….
Shahil Khan who was awarded the Top Māori or Pacific Graduand in the Bachelor of Engineering (Hons) – a huge achievement to be proud of!
Congratulations to all other nominees and winners. We would also like to express our thanks to the Auckland University of Technology School of Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences for giving us the opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate the high calibre of students through sponsoring the award prize.
We wish all the students the best for their next endeavours!
