Eric Dubsky Memorial Scholarship

Industry Leaders Scholarship

Eric Dubsky was an electrical engineer who immigrated to Australia from Nazi occupied Austria shortly before the outbreak of World War II in 1939.

Initially with his father and then as chairman and managing director he developed a small manufacturer Vulcan Electrics Pty Ltd into one of the top 100 companies in Australia - Vulcan Industries Australia Ltd. Vulcan produced a range of innovative domestic and commercial products and had 2000 employees. He employed engineering students as trainees with the company, many of whom became leaders with Vulcan and other engineering companies.

This award continues his legacy by providing young engineers with the opportunity to develop into future leaders of Australian industry.
