Our Schools are delivering teaching for impact to our Western students around the 17 Sustainable Development Goals and their interconnections. We are starting to map these linkages with within units, degrees, specialisations and extra-currciular programs.
The School of Engineering has begun this work, and has identified links with a number of SDGs. These include:
SDG 4: WSU 21C Engineering curriculum renewal flagship project. WSU Grand Challenge Scholarship are being offered at the start of 2020. They also have a joint venture with WSU-UNSW engineering course for delivery in 2021.
SDG 7: WSU Solar Car Project (extra-curricular student led project) and a series of core and alternate units in key programs like 'Electrical' specialisation which includes power quality and systems, smart grids and sustainable energy systems. They also intend to develop a new key program 'Sustainable Energy' for delivery in 2021.
SDG 9: SCEM Formula SAE-A project and the SCEM Robotics Challenge (both extra-curricular student led projects). They also offer summer scholarships and industry-based research projects for students in multiple fields of engineering
SDG 11: SCEM Engineering without Borders project (embedded in a first year multi-disciplinary unit)
SDG 13: SCEM Sustainable House Project (embedded in a final year multi-disciplinary unit)
SDG 17: SCEM also have many industry partnerships used for student projects and research, under MOUs.
