Student Profile

Alex Garlan

Studying: Bachelor of Building and Construction Management, 2014

Alex Garlan

Despite her young age, Alex is already an award-winning leader in the field of building and construction management.

Alex won Young Innovator of the Year at the 2015 ACT Australian Information Industry Association's iAwards and the Outstanding Achievement in the Construction Industry Award in 2014 from the National Association of Women in Construction.

Alex is the co-inventor of the smartphone application SignOnSite, which enables workers to sign on and off a construction site using their smartphone and therefore be located easily in an emergency. The app has resulted in over $125,000 in government and business grants and prizes in recognition of its innovation and potential to save lives.

"I don't think I could have gotten into this career without my UC degree. I think that, particularly for women in construction, having a university degree behind you goes a long way."
