Ms Felicity Galuzzo
Manager Urban Program at CitiPower and Powercor
I completed my Bachelor of Electrical Engineering degree on a part-time basis as a Cadet Electrical Engineer at BlueScope Steel. Keen to pursue a future in Power Engineering I moved to Melbourne after graduating in 2003 to take up a position with Powercor and CitiPower as a Protection & Control Engineer. In October 2008 I joined Beca. I developed from the Secondary Team Leader to the Power Section Manager to the Senior Associate leading our power delivery in the Australian market. In September 2016 I returned to CitPower & PowerCor as Manager Urban Program and am a member of the Senior Management Group. My portfolio includes project delivery leadership of customer projects in the Melbourne area and all overhead, underground and distribution substation design functions for the urban network. The business has undergone significant transformation and significant effort is being invested in improving our customer experience and building a network for the future. It is a challenging but exciting time to be part of the electricity distribution industry. I have often run into my former lecturers at industry events and conferences, and have always been impressed with how closely engaged the UOW Power Engineering staff is with industry. My undergraduate experience provided a robust foundation upon which I have developed my career, and I am proud to be associated with a university so committed to preparing its graduates for the vast world which awaits them.
