The Faculty of Engineering and Mathematical Science (EMS) and two lucky student ambassadors are among 20 finalists participating later this month, in a US competition that could lead to sustainable and innovative design of retaining walls around the world.
The Master of Professional Engineering students, Daniel Ingman and Owen Davis, led by their supervisor, Dr Ryan Beemer from the School of Civil, Environmental and Mining Engineering, will compete at Geotechnical Frontiers 2017, Orlando, Florida, an event for geotechnical, civil and geo-professional communities.
A device being developed by researchers from The University of Western Australia will improve dental procedures, significantly reduce the time they take and potentially lower dental treatment costs through new virtual (augmented) reality technology.

On 16 November the University recognised and celebrated teaching staff who have made significant contributions to the field of teaching in 2016. These awards acknowledge the University's outstanding teachers and support staff and are competitive at the University level.
Faculty students from the Electrical & Electronic Engineering Design Project unit presented their exciting project ideas last week to fellow students, Faculty staff and industry mentors. The unit ran for seven groups of Master of Professional Engineering (MPE) students undertaking electrical and electronic engineering.
The unit is one of a range of industry engagements the Faculty has arranged to equip students studying the MPE to practice as a professional engineer, applying what they learn through practical projects.
Murray Giles Little is a name that doesn’t readily come up in conversation or in print when scholars or historians refer to prominent educators in Western Australia. Nor, for that matter, is Mr. Little mentioned in the annals of The University of Western Australia (UWA), where he studied. Sometimes, even when a particular person rises through the ranks to become the Western Australian Director of Education between1940-50, he can slip through the cracks.
A mechanical Engineering student from the Faculty of Engineering, Computing and Mathematics, Sarah Meehan, embarks on a Vintage air rally in November, piloting her vintage biplane aircraft, a De Havilland Dh82-A Tigermoth, from Greece down through Africa with her Dad.
Forming part of an air rally with Crete2Cape, the duo depart Crete on the November 12 and arrive in Cape Town five weeks later. The course recreates the African aviation of the 1920s and follows in the slipstream of the early pioneers.
An online learning program to educate musicians about occupational health and optimising their performance through healthy practice has received funding to develop a commercial version for musicians and music schools around Australia.
