The First Year Engineering Course and Career Advice Day will be held at the University Club on Thursday 23rd April. Students will have the opportunity to talk with engineers from industry on industry expectations and career options, talk with students from the University Engineers Club and UWA Young Engineers, and find out about what scholarships are available.
Progress on the Strategic Review 2009 continues to be made in the Faculty, with three of the Review Area Co-Chairs preparing to release their issues paper to the Faculty. These issues papers will form the basis for considering future options for the Faculty, and are designed to stimulate conversation in the Faculty over ways to address the issues identified.
All staff are encouraged to participate in the review in the variety of ways available, and we look forward to your continued contributions to this important endeavour.
UWA is supporting a substantial investigation into ways that sessional teaching staff at UWA can be better supported in their teaching. This undertaking is being conducted by the CATLyst Network (a group of faculty representatives whose role is to promote and enhance quality teaching across the university). As a crucial first step in this project, input from sessional staff members across the university is being sought through an online survey.
The ATSE (Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering) Clunies Ross Awards recognise Australia's pre-eminent scientists and technologists who have bridged the gap between research and the marketplace.
