Kernot Fellowship Luncheon 2017

Date: Wednesday 12 April 2017

Venue: Graduate House

The Kernot Fellowship bequest society was established in 2006 after the Melbourne School of Engineering’s long association with a number of supporters who wish to recognise the schoolin their Will.

This bequest society was named after the most esteemed professor William Charles Kernot, who was both a founding recipient of the first Engineering Certificate offered by the University of Melbourne, as well as the Founding Professor of Engineering.

This year, guests were invited to have lunch at Graduate house where the Dean of Engineering, Professor Iven Mareels provided an update to members on the school and what exciting projects lie ahead for 2017.

Members of the Kernot Fellowship were also accompanied by bequest related scholarship students at the table. There was also a variety of student projects on display, allowing Kernot Members to interact with current students and also their projects.
