Further Honour for Professor Rae Mackay
Vice-Chancellor, Professor Helen Bartlett, Professor Rae and Karen Mackay and Professor Mark Sandeman
At the University’s December graduations, Professor Rae Mackay, eminent engineer and hydrogeologist, was awarded with the title of Emeritus Professor.
Professor Mackay was appointed Latrobe Valley’s first mine rehabilitation commissioner in July 2017, a position created in the wake of the reopened Hazelwood Mine Fire Inquiry.
His Emeritus Professor title was awarded in recognition of his demonstrated sustained commitment and a high level of scholarly distinction during his period at the FedUni Gippsland Campus when he was responsible for the successful establishment and leadership of the Geotechnical and Hydrogeological Engineering Research Group (GHERG).
