Our President, Dr Kourosh Kayvani, Aurecon’s (formerly Connell Wagner) special structures leader for the Asia Pacific zone has been recognised in this year’s Engineers Australia Top 100 list of most influential engineers.
The annual list appears in the June edition of Engineers Australia magazine and recognises Australian engineers who have had leading influence in industry, consulting, academia, politics and public service.
“I am honoured to be included in such a list of eminent peers in Australia,” Kourosh said.
Appearing in the category of engineering expertise, the recognition is acknowledgement of Kourosh’s 20 years of professional practice, during which time he has pushed the boundaries of structural analysis and design.
