Elyssa Mastroianni, an engineer at Costin Roe Consulting, was awarded the Australian Steel Institute Prize for 2018 at the University of Sydney (School of Civil Engineering) Prize-Giving Ceremony, an invitation-only event held in Sydney on Friday 17 May 2019.
The Australian Steel Institute (ASI) is the nation’s peak body representing the entire steel supply chain from the manufacturing mills right through to end-users in building and construction, heavy engineering, and manufacturing. The ASI acts as the focal point for the steel industry providing leadership on all major strategic issues impacting the industry, particularly focusing on economic, environmental, and social sustainability. One of its initiatives is sponsoring annual prizes given by universities to the top students in engineering subjects involving the use of steel in building design and construction.
“It was great to receive recognition for the work I put into coming first in Steel Structures as a third-year structural design subject, and I appreciate the Australian Steel Institute for supporting the prize,” Elyssa said after the ceremony. “Working at Costin Roe while I’m studying at the same time allows me to bring innovative learnings from projects into my studies, and research findings from studies into my practical work.”
