Postgraduate eguide : 2010
24 www.uow.edu.au/future/postgrad postgraduate guIde 2010 Prosperity in the 21st Century will rely more on creative minds than on the relative abundance of natural resources. Engineers will provide innovative solutions to the energy, food, shelter, communication and environmental needs of a world population expected to double by 2030. Engineers will be challenged to interact more with people, finance and management as well as delivering technical expertise. At UOW, well-designed laboratories, practical implementation of skills and an emphasis on innovation ensure graduates have the skills to meet modern engineering challenges. The Faculty’s international research has seen the long-term collaboration with partners such as Australian Nuclear Science & Technology Organisation (ANSTO), Bluescope Steel, BaoSteel Co, Fujitsu, John Hopkins University Medical School (US), Pacific Power, Defence Science & Technology Organisation (DSTO), CIGWELD, AGL and US Navy Academy. This world-class research has led to the creation of a number of Centres of Excellence, which has attracted a critical mass of researchers engaged in significant, well-funded projects with superior equipment infrastructure. This expertise filters straight into the classroom and research labs, important for Master Coursework, Master Research and Doctoral studies. This concentration of high quality research has ensured that the Faculty of Engineering is part of the Go8 – Group of Eight & Associates, the top research Faculties in Australia.
