In the face of an increasingly competitive market, UWA is driving a new recruitment initiative to encourage prospective students to enrol for second semester 2017.
Our world-leading researchers tackle global, regional and local issues. One example is advancing research to feed the world. Despite the significant progress made over the last two decades, more than one billion people around the world still go hungry every day.
In June we will host the Feeding the Future event to bring prospective and current students together to showcase how our research translates into economic, social and environmental impact.
Students can engage in talks, interactive displays and live demonstrations to see first-hand how UWA research tackles real world issues and contributes to making the world a better place.
Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Community & Engagement) Kent Anderson said in our rapidly changing world careers are changing just as quickly.
“We are preparing students for careers of the future. Our Feeding the Future event will highlight the breadth of career possibilities and showcase some of UWA’s pioneering work,” he said.
Seminar talks will include:
- Philosophy, Food and Ethical Eating by Dr Nin Kirkham and Dr Michael Rubin
- Agricultural Engineering – practical research solutions to challenging and relevant global agricultural problems by Dr Andrew Guzzomi, Research Fellow School of Mechanical and Chemical Engineering
- Food security through marine planning: managing our marine environmental resources for the 21st Century – by Dr Julian Clifton, Senior Lecturer School of Agriculture and Environment
Students, staff and the community are invited to come along – see you there! To find out more visit Feeding the Future
