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.
Researchers from the School of Civil, Environmental and Mining Engineering (CEME) are playing a key role in UWA’s new research facility providing R&D expertise for the offshore oil and gas industry.
The $10 million ARC Research Hub for Offshore Floating Facilities is a multi-disciplinary research initiative launched in April 2016. The aim of the hub is to tackle critical engineering challenges for offshore oil and gas projects by improving designs and operating procedures.
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.
Civil Engineering student Eric Grandinger, recently coordinated a key industry Panel event, Maximising Infrastructure through Digital Engineering, on 2 November. Eric is Events Coordinator for the Institution of Civil Engineers - WA Local Association (ICE WALA) and in collaboration with the Chartered Institute of Building - WA Chapter (CIOB WA), opened the Industry Panel Discussion at Ernst & Young’s Perth office.
Engineers at The University of Western Australia’s Civil, Environmental and Mining Engineering School (CEME) are using the expertise gained in the offshore oil and gas industry to help test the effectiveness of offshore artificial reefs (OARs) being deployed around Australia, including one earmarked for the waters off Rottnest Island.
The aim of the artificial reefs is to establish a sustainable marine environment to support productive fish communities for recreational fishing, says CEME senior lecturer Dr Scott Draper.
A tool that will enable surgeons to detect malignant breast cancer tissue during surgery using new imaging techniques has been developed by researchers at The University of Western Australia and the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research.
The University of Western Australia is preparing to host the annual Western Australian Junior Mathematics Olympiad (WAJO) later this month. The competition attracts up to 400 mathematically gifted students from over 35 schools across the state. Bunbury and Karratha once again host a satellite competition, concurrent with Perth, following successful inaugural events last year.
An innovative crowdsourced design challenge for the revolutionary EZONE UWA, an infrastructure project to build a new student hub for learning, research and community engagement space, was recently held over two days at The University of Western Australia.
The University of Western Australia’s Faculty of Engineering, Computing and Mathematics has announced a new partnership with entrepreneurial technology startup WearHawk as part of an initiative to foster new ways to engage with industry and accelerate innovation.
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.
On Wednesday night, some lucky students and staff members from The University of Western Australia (UWA) attended the highly anticipated ‘An evening with Steve Wozniak’, one of the pioneers of personal computing and co-founder of Apple, at HBF stadium.
Through a sponsorship partnership between the Faculty of Engineering, Computing and Mathematics and the Deputy Vice Chancellor (Research), UWA gained exciting ticket packages and exclusive access to meet Steve Wozniak.
