Building Demolition

Finally after being in our new building for over a year now, we have started seeing our beloved old building next door being demolished. In its place we can expect to see another building similar to the new one we are in now, connected up as a large science and engineering precinct to contribute to the large growth that UNSW expects to see in STEM fields and help promote academic excellence, social engagement and global impact to achieve the goals set out in the UNSW 2025 strategy.

Staff Awards

The following staff members have been recognised for their achievements and contributions to the field of Materials Science and Engineering over the past few months:

Dr. Adnan Younis - One of our postdoctoral researchers has been invited to attend the 66th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting later this month. The meeting is by invitation only and brings together 400 of the best and brightest young physical scientists with 30 Nobel Laureates. The networking opportunities and experience gained at the meetings will be invaluable as they attend this prestigious event and we wish Adnan all the best for his success in gaining a highly contested invitation application process.

Dr Yusef Kaneti – We would like to wish Yusef all the best and congratulate him on being selected as one of only 12 candidates across the country to receive the 2016-2017 Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) Postdoctoral Fellowship, which was award by the Australian Academic of Science. Although this means that we will sadly lose Yusef from the school, he will go over to Japan and use his new fellowship to participate in discussions, attend seminars, give lectures and perform research at their Japanese institutions. All the best!
