The new labs, part of ongoing renovations within the Macquarie Faculty of Science and Engineering, will enable undergraduate biology students access to modern, cutting-edge equipment, bringing them up to the world-class standard of the university’s other digital learning environments.

Aside from the state-of-the-art microscopes, the three labs also sport large internal and external display windows, featuring interesting relevant teaching materials that will complement the class activities.

These new look labs allow teachers and students to work together using the latest integrated technologies. The microscopy instruments’ integration system give students the opportunity to develop critical, analytical, and integrative thinking through their investigations—turning their laboratory sessions into targeted, intelligently explained, and purposeful learning experiences.

The new labs were launched by Daniel Mehring, Marketing Director for industry partner VWR International, with more than 100 staff members and friends of the Macquarie Department of Biological Sciences in attendance. The launch event was a celebratory interactive welcome function enabling guests to preview the new labs and experiencing the sample displays set up on the new digital microscopes.

“One thing that surprised me was that staff and guests couldn’t quite get enough of looking through the microscopes at the displays,” Rekha Joshi, Senior Technical Manager commented.

“They were all thrilled to see what they were not expecting to see, which in many ways is what these new labs are all about.”

Macquarie University has an international reputation for being innovative in the study of science. It is at the forefront of research nationally and internationally, and excels in the application and commercialization of new discoveries.

The Faculty of Science and Engineering at Macquarie is broken down into the following departments:

A bold new arena for Macquarie University Engineering students

Engineering students at Macquarie University now have access to sophisticated and high-class learning facilities with the launch of the newly refurbished engineering laboratories.

At the recent opening, Vice-Chancellor Professor S Bruce Dowton noted that throughout the last 10 years, the Bachelor of Engineering program has grown quickly with close to 1,000 students currently enrolled.

With the university’s ambitious program hoping to double enrolments by 2020, Professor Dowton said it was imperative that Macquarie facilities are world-class to enhance students’ learning experiences.

The Macquarie University Engineering School is committed to excellence in research, learning and teaching, and industry engagement. The school offers an integrated cross-disciplinary engineering program, with particular focus on electronics, communication systems, mechatronics and mechanical engineering. There is an emphasis on supported learning in both the undergraduate and graduate programs, with a high ratio of tutors per student, and state-of-the-art facilities. Macquarie research staff are internationally recognized and leading in a number of areas including antenna design, next generation wireless communication systems, and microelectronics. Recent growth has been into the areas of biomedical, mechatronics, and nano-materials engineering.

Macquarie recognized for breakthrough in wireless technology

Macquarie University is reporting that Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO)’s breakthrough invention that paved the way for fast, high-data-rate wireless networking (often referred to today as Wi-Fi) is now an internationally known Australian success story that, to date, has returned to the national research agency more than $430 million in royalties.

But did you know that researchers at Macquarie University played a critical role in helping translate this invention into a prototype for a commercial integrated circuit?

That chapter of collaboration was recognized recently with the receipt by Macquarie University of a cheque for the final payment under a 2005 royalty sharing arrangement with CSIRO for Macquarie’s share of proceeds from the licensing of jointly developed wireless microcircuit chip technology.

Macquarie Vice-Chancellor, Professor S Bruce Dowton, said recognition of the university’s important role in the early development of high-speed wireless LAN was important as Macquarie prepared to celebrate its 50th birthday next year.

“For a young institution we have an incredibly strong record of achievement in a range of research fields, not least electronics and engineering,” he said. “Despite intense international competition, at that time CSIRO and Macquarie scientists were at the forefront of telecommunications technology research anywhere in the world. Twenty years later we are exceptionally proud of the achievements of those scientists and of the foresight shown by the administrators who supported their work with significant investment.”

Chief Executive of CSIRO, Dr Megan Clark, said that they’ve had a long history working in wireless technology, and that experience is well known around the world. “We’ve been working with Macquarie University for many years and are thrilled to recognize the part that it played in the history of wireless technology. We look forward to our ongoing work, and hope to make many more announcements in the future.”
