MyPE reported in August that: "Gaye le Roux, Professor Emeritus and former Head of the Department of Quantity Surveying at the then University of Port Elizabeth (now Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University), has spent a lifetime making her mark in what has been a predominantly male environment.

When she took up her appointment as Head of Quantity Surveying at UPE in 1983, she became the first woman worldwide to head up a tertiary Built Environment Department.

On 1 August she became the first woman to receive a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Association of Schools of Construction of Southern Africa (ASOCSA), at the gala dinner of the Association’s 10th Built Environment Conference, hosted in Port Elizabeth from 31 July to 2 August, and themed “Towards a Renaissance”.
