The Award was established in 1972 by Mr W. N. Jebson, a former senior lecturer in Mechanical Engineering who retired in 1962 after 35 years’ association with the School of Engineering at Auckland. It commemorates the recognition by the University of New Zealand of teaching for the Bachelor of Engineering at the Auckland School of Engineering from 1928. During 1995 the fund was supplemented by Mr Selwyn Jebson, son of the founder, and the Department of Mechanical Engineering and the Award’s name was changed to commemorate the founder.

The purpose of the Award is to further the status of mechanical engineers by encouraging graduates to join their professional association.
