Simeon Gover

Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) / Master of Engineering
Liveris Undergraduate Scholar

Simeon is currently in his fifth year of completing a Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) / Master of Engineering majoring in Civil Engineering. This basically means,  he spends a lot of my time thinking about urban water systems and how infrastructure can develop in response to changing water modes due to climate change. 

He graduated from St Paul’s School Bald Hills in 2019 as school captain. In his time at St Paul’s he says his passion for getting involved in everything possible was truly fostered.

Since starting at UQ, he has immersed himself in the clubs and societies culture in a way to give back to the broader community with his time and effort. This has led him to the position of Engagement Officer for the Civil Engineering Student Association, the Undergraduate Representative on the Age Friendly University Steering Committee as well as President of the UQ Public Speaking Society.

Outside of this, Simeon works as a seminar presenter and has been a proud member of the UQ Cheer Squad since 2020 and spends much of his time convincing whoever is around him to give ‘the greatest sport ever’ a go.

Simeon loves to travel, meet people and hear their stories. He recently completed an exchange to the University of California, Berkeley and spent a further two months travelling through South America. Simeon found these were life changing experiences that he will hold onto for many years to come.

In the future he hopes to be able to make a difference giving back to a diverse range of communities and ultimately make large scale systems more sustainable. When asked just what that means he says there isn’t a clear answer. Put simply, he wants to help provide long term solutions to as many people in the most impactful way as possible.
