Description: The Lend Lease Bradfield Urbanisation Scholarship has been established thanks to the generosity of the property and infrastructure solutions company. John Bradfield is known to many as the father of modern Sydney. He was an engineering visionary whose ideas shaped the direction of Sydney. His Ph.D. thesis, written while a student in the School of Civil Engineering describes not just the need for a Sydney Harbour Bridge but also for a transport system – rail and road – extending to the foot of the Blue Mountains. When Bradfield came to the University of Sydney from Ipswich on a award in 1886, he was one of only three engineering students. He graduated with First Class Honours in 1889, won the University Medal with his Masters of Engineering in 1896, and won the University Medal again in 1924 with his Doctorate of Science in Engineering. He remained involved with the University as a Fellow of the University Senate from 1913 to 1943, and was Deputy Chancellor in 1942.
