Named after the founding Dean of the Faculty, Professor Cliff Bellamy, the annual Bellamy Awards is a chance for the Faculty of IT to recognise some of its brightest students and most dedicated teachers.
The 2016 celebration was held at the Monash Club, where staff, student prize winners and their families gathered for a delicious dinner and the presentation of the awards.
