On September 24, over 1200 Year 10 to 12 Physics students across WA high schools descended upon Adventure World to attend the annual Physics Day organised by STAWA (Science Teachers’ Association of Western Australia). It was an educational day filled with fun and action packed. Students got to experience and witness first-hand phenomena involving physics, technology, engineering design and mathematics in a “real world” STEM laboratory that can be found at Adventure World with its large scale apparatus.
In the fields of engineering and technology, the School of Engineering is has achieved a 5-Star Rating across four criteria in the Good Universities Guide 2021 edition:
A team of five staff and PhD students visited Thornlie High School, delivering two exciting activities designed specifically by the School of Engineering as part of their STEM program called CREATE – Creating Real Engineering And Technology Experiences. The event was attended by over 100 students from Year 7 to Year 10, including participation by teachers
As part of the School’s continuous commitment to support teaching and learning in the community, the School recently donated 30 computers to Fountain College.
The competition was open to all Australian university students and our two students are the only WA university winners. Engineering Village (Compendex) covers high-quality, relevant and cross-disciplinary content, enabling engineers and researchers to perform thorough and effective literature reviews, analyse the research landscape, and solve problems.
Dr Douglas Chai was recently presented with the IEEE Western Australia Outstanding Volunteer Award 2019. The award recognises Dr Chai’s distinguished accomplishments, significant achievements, professional, administrative and technical leadership contributions to IEEE WA section and chapter activities and operations. The School of Engineering congratulates Dr Chai on his outstanding achievements.
ECU’s School of Engineering proudly acknowledges the strong support of Schlumberger who have generously donated licences for the latest versions of their subsurface modelling tools to support School’s teaching and research in subsurface resources development. This support allows ECU students and researchers to use the latest industry-grade modelling tools for their learning and research, enhancing the alignment of our curriculum and research with industry trends.
