The School of Electrical, Electronic and Computer Engineering is turning around the recent trend of declining enrolments in the School’s courses. Western Power is taking a leading role in helping reverse this trend.
Combining no tillage farming and integrated weed management (IWM) strategies can reduce graingrower reliance on herbicides and help create long term sustainable and profitable cropping practices.
The University of Western Australia (UWA) Institute of Agriculture graduate, Frank D’Emden, won the 2006 Australian Agriculture and Resource Economics Society (AARES) masters thesis prize for a study on southern Australian grain growers’ adoption of conservation tillage.
It may seem odd that the best way for newborns to survive is for their mothers to eat their way out of house and home, but for Australia’s sheep this may help boost their flock beyond 100 million.
A revolutionary grazing technique trialled by scientists at the Institute of Agriculture, University of Western Australia (UWA), could help Australia’s sheep flock meet the growing demand for prime lamb by increasing the 381,839 tonnes (05/06) it annually produces.
Innovation in legume science and technology remains the focus of the Centre for Legumes In Mediterranean Agriculture (CLIMA) as it moves into its third phase as a research centre within the University of Western Australia (UWA).
CLIMA has been headquartered at UWA’s Crawley campus since commencing in 1992 as a Co-operative Research Centre (CRC) and transforming in 2000, after its CRC phase ended, into a research alliance between the WA Department of Agriculture and Food (DAFWA), UWA, CSIRO and Murdoch University.
The current memorandum of understanding between CLIMA and the four partners concludes June 30.
The School of Civil and Resource Engineering at UWA is currently ranked 18th in the world in terms of research output in the sub-discipline of Civil Engineering, according to the Centre for Evaluation of Science and Technology.
The School of Computer Science and Software Engineering (CSSE) at UWA has made a significant contribution to WA school children’s learning through its Awesome Animations and Animatronics Outreach Programme.
Engineers Australia has named 2007 the Year of Women in Engineering. They are planning a range of activities to educate people about engineering, the role of women in engineering and to showcase the successes and achievements of female engineers.
