Research news and events
Engage with the UTS research community, discover and connect.
The Faculty of Engineering and IT Research Showcase is an annual celebration of cutting-edge work by research candidates from each of our six schools. The event promotes learning, engagement and networking with Higher Degree Research candidates. Talks and displays on emerging and exciting research across data science and engineering highlight impact on industries such as IT, utilities, transport, and healthcare. A closing award ceremony recognises the most innovative projects.
Research Excellence Development Series
The Faculty has established a Research Excellence Development Series to showcase diverse research topics undertaken by our research leaders. The Series demonstrates how their work impacts society and provides motivation to early to mid-career researchers to achieve research excellence in their future.
Distinguished Lecture Series
Launched in 2017, the Distinguished Lecture Series provides an opportunity to initiate a conversation around relevant research issues and challenges faced by our Distinguished Professors and a platform to present to the public about the impact of their research work. The lectures, held three times a year, are attended by industry partners, academics, and students from UTS and other universities.
