Students from the School of Civil, Environmental and Mining Engineering have been awarded the Sustainable Engineering Society’s South Australia student award. Jonathan Schulz, Stella Naylor, Sam Kapadia and Peter Golding won the award for their honours project: A Framework for the Development of Optimal Food Trade Strategies for Mitigating the Impact of Shocks on Global Food Security. Under the guidance of supervisors Professor Holger Maier (University of Adelaide), Professor Upmanu Lall (Columbia University) and Dr Marijn van der Velde (European Commission), a framework was produced to explore the role that optimisation can play in improving global food security through trade.

Judged based upon a number of criteria including evidence of sustainability concepts as well as technical excellence and good engineering method, the Society offers an annual State Environmental Engineering and Sustainability Award to undergraduate students to encourage the development of a sustainability ethic throughout Australia. The winning student project from each state is entered to compete in the National Student Environmental Engineering and Sustainability Award.
