Western Australia’s innovation, entrepreneurship and research expertise was celebrated last night at The University of Western Australia’s inaugural IQ Awards, held at Crawley's historic Masonic Hall. The event saw three very different projects awarded for their impact and ingenuity.
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.
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.
A new engineering program which is the first of its kind in Western Australia will enable bioengineers to work on cutting-edge technologies to improve health outcomes such as reducing the amount of surgery needed by cancer patients and developing new equipment that can detect people at risk of heart attacks.
An international team of scientists including 21 researchers from UWA has made a major breakthrough: a second detection of gravitational waves, following their world-first discovery of gravitational waves last September.
Researchers at The University of Western Australia have invented a new technique for ‘flaming’ wild seeds that could allow them to be used more easily in replanting large tracts of land such as reclaimed mine sites.
Students in WA can choose from three ATAR maths subjects ranging in difficulty from Mathematics Applications (easiest), to Mathematics Methods (intermediate) and Mathematics Specialist (highest level).
A project led by Dr Mark Waters from UWA to find new ways to improve crop productivity and one by UWA’s Professor Alistair Paterson to help preserve the heritage of the state’s north-west are winners in the latest round of funding grants from the Australian Research Council (ARC).
One of the first experimental investigations to simulate the high-pressure formation of oil droplets during deepwater blowouts has attracted the attention of the prestigious journal Chemical Engineering Science
Transforming engineering practice in Australia could result in a prosperous future based on clean energy, while in developing countries it could unleash a new wave of economic growth, according to a new book, to be launched at The University of Western Australia on Monday 10 November.
Rio Tinto chief executive Sam Walsh is one of several distinguished Western Australians whose contributions to the community has been recognised at The University of Western Australia during its autumn series of graduations for more than 3,800 students.
Research into honeybees, a clock for the Square Kilometre Array and the next generation ‘microscope in a needle' to find cancer will be among dozens of projects to receive a slice of almost $775,000 awarded by The University of Western Australia to collaborative research efforts across the globe.
Two of The University of Western Australia's top mechanical engineers have been recognised by Engineers Australia with the Sir George Julius medal for their ground-breaking research into the use of engineering computations in image-guided surgery.
If you were on campus last Friday 30 March, you may have been surprised to see large groups of students with wheel barrows, conspicuously dressed in white protective clothing, working eagerly along the route between the back of the Civil and Mechanical Engineering building and Riley Oval.
