It may be a case of being in the right place at the right time, but every so often, a pioneering individual in society sees a need and endeavours to address it. Our University honours several of our own innovators in many of our significant facilities.
Water, as much as war or wealth, shapes our history.
PhD candidate Ruth Morgan is about to make history herself, presenting her environmental history research on Western Australian water issues at the prestigious Western History Dissertation Workshop in California in June.
When it's time to polish the mirror on the Zadko telescope, it's not simply a matter of getting out the Windex and a soft cloth.
Cleaning, polishing, maintaining and resurfacing the mirror on the one-metre Cassegrain optical telescope near the Gravity Discovery Centre at Gingin requires specialised technical skills that John Moore will develop in France later this year.
Recent references in the national media to our University's introduction of curriculum changes from next year has helped to focus public attention on these reforms - the biggest changes to our curriculum since our University's inception.
