LNG: The Future of WA’s Gas Market

UWA key scientists are making valuable breakthroughs for the entire LNG value-chain by leading research infrastructure at the University.

Underwater Gliders to Observe the Ocean

Autonomous ‘mini-torpedoes with wings’ are revolutionizing the collection of ocean observations.  The gliders are fairly cheap, reusable and can be remotely controlled, making them a relatively cost-effective method for collecting ocean subsurface observations. The ocean gliders are providing data about the ocean on unprecedented temporal and spatial scales leading to documentation of new processes and long-term monitoring. […]

Wave Energy and Desalination

The UWA Oceans Institute has initiated a large collaboration research plan to assist Carnegie in the last development step and implementation of CETO, a wave energy technology that converts ocean swell into zero-emission renewable power and desalinated freshwater.

The UWA Oceans Institute

The UWA Oceans Institute (OI) was established to further enhance the capabilities of marine research in Western Australia by drawing together the University’s researchers and collaborators in the fields of marine science, engineering, social sciences and governance.

The Korea Energy and Minerals Resources Engineering Program

he Korea Energy and Minerals Resources Engineering Program (KEMREP) is a partnership between UWA and Curtin University and a number of significant Koreas institutions.

International Mining for Development Centre (IM4DC)

In partnership with the Australian Government, The University of Western Australia and The University of Queensland established the International Mining for Development Centre to assist in lifting the quality of life in developing nations through a more sustainable use of mineral and energy resources.

"I am confident that in the coming decades the city of Perth will grow in importance as a centre of business, educational and technological excellence in the region. This State will also continue to develop as the epicentre of a global resource and mineral supply economy delivering the growth that has seen an economic power shift to the Asian and Indian Ocean regions."
