2021 Engineer Finalist-ACE Principal Engineer-Yu Zhao
I just got some exciting news! – 2021 Engineers Australia Award nomination.
I am very humbled to receive the news that I have been selected as a finalist in the 2021 Professional Engineer of the Year award by Engineers Australia. Since arriving in Australia 18 years ago, my ambition has been to become an engineer. Yes, I am a little older than I may look 😊. Whether or not I am ultimately successful in this award is not really the point. I am just so grateful to everyone around me for their support through the years. That includes my family, my team and all my wonderful clients. It is an absolute honour to be nominated and to serve you all.
I feel truly blessed to be given the opportunity to run my own control systems company – Australian Control Engineering (ACE). We have a saying in ACE: “Happy Team, Happy Clients”. So, just being nominated for this prestigious Engineers Australia award makes us all very happy. Our task is now to build on that momentum, and to make our clients even happier. Thank you to you all!
