The Education Strategic Review Co-Chairs, Professor James Trevelyan and Associate Professor Gordon Royle, invite all members of the faculty to an open workshop.

The Faculty Strategic Review continues to make progress, with the majority of the review areas currently working on the development of options for the Faculty.
Staff are asked to continue to look at the Strategic Review website, and continue participating and contributing to the review, by making submissions, participating in workshops and keeping up to date with the information from each of the review areas.
The Faculty is delighted to announce that last week, during the annual STLE (Society of Tribologists and Lubrication Engineers) meeting in Orlando, USA, Professor Gwidon Stachowiak was awarded a prestigious STLE Fellowship for his outstanding contributions to tribology.
On Thursday, 21st May the Faculty held our annual prize-giving event, only this year it took the format of a breakfast with almost 200 students, staff and prize donors being treated to a sumptuous meal at the University Club.
The Faculty's outreach activities have reached a crescendo in recent weeks, culminating in a three day Career, Education and Employment Expo at the Perth Convention Exhibition Centre attended by a record 12,000 people! The result is that now the option of studying computer science, engineering or maths at UWA is foremost in the minds of many students who perhaps thought it was out of reach or that other universities may be a better choice.
Professor Alistar Robertson (Chair UWA Associate Deans Research) wishes to identify non-UWA mid-career researchers (5-10 years post-PhD) who would be competitive in the next ARC Future Fellowships round (expected to be announced sometime mid-year).
