The high honour -  usually only bestowed upon engineers in the later years of their working life - went to Manager Network Strategy and Policy Blake Harvey, 32, from Rockhampton, and Principal Engineer Technology Innovation Dr David Ingram, 42, from Brisbane, (pictured).  The Fellowships recognise a significant career achievement for Blake and David.

Blake is one of the youngest to receive the high honour and comes after recently serving as the Queensland President of Engineers Australia.

“It is a huge recognition,” Blake said of the Fellowship.

“Only five per cent of the membership can hold the grade of Fellow as it’s a recognition of significant career achievement and contribution in your field of engineering.

“I am deeply honoured to now be amongst the ranks of other Fellows within Engineers Australia, particularly given I am half the age of most of them!” Blake said.

Meanwhile, David said: “It’s nice to receive recognition from the engineering profession after many years of study and work”.

“Fellowship will help me promote Ergon’s technical capability, particularly when dealing with external suppliers and research institutions.”
