150 years of engineering education

In 2011 the Melbourne School of Engineering celebrated 150 years of engineering education.

The Melbourne School of Engineering capped a wonderful year of 150th Anniversary celebrations with a Gala Dinner in The Great Hall of the National Gallery of Victoria. Almost 500 guests, including His Excellency, the Governor of Victoria, and many alumni, industry partners and staff, braved a stormy Melbourne night on the 28th of October to attend.

These videos were made to celebrate 150 years of engineering education at the University of Melbourne and were first presented at our 150th Gala Dinner.

Produced by Sam Davison, Elise Everest, and Jenny Smith. Special thanks to Prof Len Stevens, Mr Gary Mackenzie, Mr Frank Lees AM MBE, Mr Kevin Anderson, Mr Ryan Bentley, Ms Chloe Jack, Ms Gillian McTigue, Mr Tony Zara, Ms Nicole Jones. Special thank you to Dr Carolyn Rasmussen, whose book Increasing Momentum: Engineering at the University of Melbourne 1861–2004 provided much of the content for the videos.
