It's seems like Spring marks the beginning of awards season, with two UTS academics awarded 2015 Eureka prizes, known as the 'Oscars' of the science world. Two of our most accomplished alumnae – Professor Carolyn McGregor AM and UTS Luminary Nasima Rahmani – are also speaking at the Advance Global Australian Summit in Sydney on 14 September – with discounted tickets available for UTS alumni!
We're also counting down to our 2015 UTS Alumni Awards gala dinner and ceremony, recognising the inspiring achievements of our most outstanding alumni – find out how to get your tickets here.
And Sydney's historic Goods Line, a new public walkway linking Central Station and Darling Harbour, has opened, passing by the Dr Chau Chak Wing Building – if you're in Sydney, make sure to take a stroll!
Some new alumni events include the upcoming launch of our Japan alumni network, and an opportunity to reconnect for Science alumni. For our many Kuring-gai graduates we invite you to catch up with former classmates and staff. As we say a fond 'Goodbye Kuring-gai' in November, it's your last chance to revisit our bush campus as part of UTS, so make sure you register to attend this event!
Our congratulations to UTS Luminary and tech entrepreneur Adrian Turner, who has been announced as the head of the CSIRO and NICTA digital research powerhouse, Data61.
In other news, UTS Chancellor Professor Vicki Sara AO has a special message for alumni following her announcement that she will be retiring in the new year after 12 years in the role. We will miss her warmth, enthusiasm and passion for our UTS community, and wish her all the best.
Deputy Director, Alumni Relations and Communications
