Winthrop Professor John Dell (Dean)The Faculty of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences strives to empower people to change the world.

Sometimes people suggest that the great innovations, the greatest advances, have already taken place - the Newtons, the Edisons, the Bells.

At the University of Western Australia, we believe that history will prove otherwise. History will show that we have only just begun and we believe that the greatest achievements are still ahead of us.

The world is changing rapidly. We are faced with an increasing population, higher standards of living and greater expectations than ever before. We live in a world that requires smarter use of energy and resources - and real changes to the way we work, live and interact. Our challenge is to develop technologies that fulfil the demands of our 21st century expectations.

These challenges require new ways of thinking and greater ability to put those ideas into practice. This is why we are focused on providing the best possible learning environments for the leaders of tomorrow.

Through both practical and theory-based learning, we provide the exciting and engaging environment required to inspire creativity, innovation and collaboration. Our graduates are well-equipped to tackle global challenges.

Our Engineering and Mathematical Sciences undergraduate and postgraduate courses are designed to meet the changes in the world. Our teaching is informed by the latest developments in research and industry, and we believe that it is this, together with our purpose-built learning and teaching facilities (such as the Monadelphous Integrated Learning Centre and Clough Engineering Student Centre), outstanding teaching staff and commitment to students, that makes UWA a place that truly breeds excellence and fosters ingenuity.

Wherever Engineering and Mathematical Sciences may take you, we look forward to helping you achieve your goals at UWA. We invite you to participate in an exciting and rewarding experience that will make you a sought-after graduate with an internationally recognised education, ready to change the world.
