Engineers should be involved in large-scale projects that significantly impact the well-being of communities. “The reason why we are engineers is that good, safe infrastructure is a priority for the livelihood and longevity of our communities.” This is the message from Dr. Tony Igboamalu, recently named Young Engineering Professional of the Year at the 2019/2020 South African Professional Services Awards (SAPSA). He is currently employed by engineering, design and advisory company Aurecon. Dr. Igboamalu’s achievements to date are also a proud testament to Youth Month 2020.

“The future of our business relies on the education and skills of tomorrow’s leaders,” comments Aurecon Africa Chief Executive Officer Gustav Rohde. “We are a firm believer in education as a driver for skills development.”
