UWA’s Africa Research & Engagement Centre (AfREC) has hit the ground running after last week’s launch. A number of ambassadors, high commissioners and vice-chancellors were at the AfREC launch and have already pursued direct engagement with the Centre.
Graduation ceremonies for semester two will be held from 11-15 December 2018.
The change in date from March 2019 to December 2018 enables many students to graduate closer to their completion of studies and, for some students, means that they will be able to attend their ceremonies when previously they may not have.
UWA will partner with leading Australian and European institutions to unlock two of the most compelling mysteries in contemporary physics.
The University will support the operations of the Anglo-Australian Telescope (AAT) in New South Wales and the European Southern Observatory’s 4 Metre Optical Spectroscopic Telescope (4MOST) in northern Chile, in their investigations into the galaxy distribution.
The Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Education) portfolio is currently working on a distinctive Student Experience Strategy (2019 – 2021) that complements UWA student engagement with teaching and research. The strategy recognises that the student experience means different things to students at different stages of their UWA journey, and engages with different parts of the University throughout their degree. It articulates a transformative, inclusive and student-centred experience that exceeds the expectations of students.
In May, the University established the UWA Public Policy Institute (UWA PPI) as a new way to share our world-class research and expertise with decision makers and community leaders.
UWA PPI Director, David Norman says the Institute recently met with Local Government Professionals WA (LGPWA) CEO, Candy Choo, to discuss commissioning research into the mental health impacts on employees in the sector.

Computer scientist Professor Mohammed Bennamoun from UWA’s School of Computer Science and Software Engineering is a self-professed gardening lover but it would be no surprise if a few weeds had escaped his eagle eye lately.
He’s currently embedded three days a week at Woodside Energy, along with four of his PhD students, to work on a project focused on mapping images to 3D coordinates.
The former lecturer in robotics at Queen’s University in Canada and Queensland University of Technology says the opportunity to collaborate with industry in such a hands-on way is invaluable.
