Research has a vast influence on the ways we plan and live our lives. UTS: Engineering and IT research spans widely, from thought-controlled wheelchairs to big data analysis that informs cancer diagnosis, to affordable earthquake-proof housing for people living in disaster-prone regions. Our aim is to look beyond the obvious and come up with useful, tangible ways that have a transformational impact on the world.
Our research strengths include:
- intelligent mechatronic systems
- quantum computation and intelligent systems
- innovation in IT services and applications
- health technologies
- green energy vehicle innovation
- real-time information networks
- built infrastructure
- technology in water and wastewater
- advanced analytics
- electrical machines and power electronics
- energy policy
- human-centred technology design
|Master of Engineering (Research)||enables students to extend and deepen their knowledge of a specialised area in engineering by undertaking research under supervision of a member of academic staff|
|Doctor of Philosophy||involves an intense period of supervised study and research, culminating in the submission of a thesis. Students must, through original investigation, make a distinct and significant contribution to the knowledge of their field of specialisation|
Master of Engineering (Research) and PhD candidates are supervised by academic research staff with expertise in the candidate's chosen field. With a focus on industry collaboration, proposals that involve direct working relationships with industry professionals are strongly encouraged.
Applicants must secure an agreement with a supervisor prior to lodging an application.
