For the first time, The University of Western Australia will allow Year 12 students to apply – six months earlier than usual – for a guaranteed place in engineering, based on an ATAR score predicted by their school.
The inaugural semester of UWA’s Innovation & Startup Practice unit (BUSN3020) came to a culmination on Friday June 3 for the eagerly anticipated ‘Demo Day’.
Initiated through a partnership with the Faculty of Engineering, Computing and Mathematics (ECM) and Pollenizer, one of Australia’s leading digital incubators, 50-something students presented project ideas at the Ernst & Young Lecture Theatre at UWA’s Business School.
In a real-life consulting project for ATCO Gas Australia, a team of UWA MBA students has developed a strategy to help the company thrive in Western Australia’s rapidly evolving energy market. ATCO has been a long standing partner of the UWA Business School and is passionate about providing opportunities for students to develop their skills in and out of the lecture theatre.
"I think that we have an obligation to make our profession as strong and well-regarded as possible within the wider community and the two best ways to do that are through our own performance and through guiding those who are new to or just starting out in the profession." – James Hindle
