2015 CEED Scholar Diyang Qi Wins Fresh Water Thinking Innovation Award
2015 CEED scholar Diyand Qi has been awarded a “Fresh Water Thinking Innovation Award – People’s Choice” for his project on “Modelling Non-Visible Leaks to Improve Targeted Detection” and the subsequent implementation work he has done with the Water Corporation (after graduation). Detectors are now using the models he developed to better target leaks.
The project was supervised by Joe Standing and Jon Langford of the Water Corporation, and Melinda Hodkiewicz, Nazim Khan and Gopalan Nair of UWA. The CEED seminar paper of the work is available here.
Diyang has received an APA Scholarship, and is currently working on a PhD in Civil Engineering at UNSW in the Civil Engineering group.

The CEED Career Launch Pad - Uniview, November 2015
Uniview, November 2015 – For students working strategically to shape their career prospects, the opportunity to get hands-on experience in ‘real world’ projects – with a mining company, architectural firm, legal office or a government agency – is invaluable. UWA appreciates that providing students with the chance to work ‘at the coal face’, doing research requested by a company, allows them to gain insights into a future work environment – and they can tap into a network of industry professionals. While education-wise the benefits are obvious – students are mentored by academic supervisors and industry professionals – further benefits accrue as links between the University and its industry partner are strengthened. And, given UWA’s status in global and national university ranking, engaging with an institution that boasts acknowledged thought leaders in a variety of fields is welcomed by our partners. This ‘win-win’ philosophy underpins the Cooperative Education for Enterprise Development (CEED) concept that was first rolled out with federal funding after a pilot at RMIT in the 1980s. Today several universities across Australia have created variations of the original, with UWA’s CEED being a successful self-sustaining model that has stood the test of time. It sees a CEED client paying a fixed fee to have a student embedded in their organisation, working on an Honours, Masters or Higher Degree by Research thesis in an area of real need that it has identified. It’s a model that appears to be going from strength to strength – with student demand currently outpacing the supply of placements. So the hunt is on for more clients!
