UWA's microscope-in-a-needle wins prestigious national award
A team of biomedical engineers and doctors from The University of Western Australia has won The Australian newspaper’s Innovation Challenge for developing the world’s smallest handheld microscope.
The Faculty of Engineering, Computing and Mathematics is a world leader in Engineering for Remote Operations (ERO).
ERO provides an integrated approach and solutions to the challenges of mining development and production, offshore engineering, agriculture, health, transport, energy, water supply and community development. It is highly relevant to Western Australia and the Indian Ocean Rim and provides clear and measurable results for economies, industry, government and the community at a local and national level.
Our Faculty has several multidisciplinary research groups with the expertise to address diverse challenges in ERO.
