The UWA Centre for Software Practice (CSP) was launched in 2006 and focuses on providing web based solutions to both the private and public sector. Currently, the CSP develops and licenses software for the tertiary education sector, in the areas of research management and university administration, and for the health sector, in the field of e-Medicine.
In 2007 the CSP received a grant of almost two million dollars from the Federal Department of Health and Ageing to develop the Great Southern Managed Health Network (GSMHN), a managed health network that includes a secure medical messaging system for Health Care professionals. The GSMHN was officially launched by the Federal Health Minister Nicola Roxon on August 20 2008, and is currently being rolled out across Western Australia.
In addition to software development, the CSP includes a Web Design Team that creates and updates websites, logos and print material for its clients. The CSP has designed websites for a number of WA businesses, including Paladin Energy, SkyStar Airport Services and the engineering group, Monadelphous.
The CSP is staffed by graduates and students of UWA and is lead by director, Dr David Glance. One of the central tenets of the CSP is the belief that it is important for graduates to leave UWA with real-world experience, and thus, the Centre offers work experience and practical opportunities to current students. The CSP's practicum program provides training to students from the School of Computer Science and Software Engineering as well as from other areas of the University. The CSP's young work group meet all challenges with enthusiasm and energy while providing customers with fresh and exciting viewpoints.
Whether it is a custom built application, a new website or some graphic design work, the UWA Centre for Software Practice provides customers with a reliable yet dynamic and up-to-date professional solution.
