Learn from thought leaders
As a postgraduate student, you’ll be guided by those in the know. Our postgraduate course directors are maths and science leaders who are actively advancing their fields of enquiry. Whether you’re pursuing coursework or research, our academics and here to help you make the most of your postgraduate studies.
Gain real-world experience
You’ll be ready to apply your skills to the workplace by completing both professional and advanced scientific subjects, particularly in the Master of Science coursework program. Practice-based assignments and group work are high on the agenda in the delivery of our postgraduate courses.
Work on real-world projects and make an impact
Professional subjects such as Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Commercialisation provide you with the opportunity to come up with an idea, develop the product, establish a start-up company, manage the IP and pitch it to investors, media and the community.
Build industry connections
You’ll have the chance to get involved with research projects that are conducted in close collaboration with industry and government research organisations, such as Sydney Water, NSW Department of Primary Industries, the Australian Federal Police, NSW Police, ANSTO and the CSIRO.
Combine online and face-to-face learning
The UTS wide learning.futures approach aims to integrate the best of face-to-face and online experiences that places you, the student, at the centre of your learning experience. Think collaborative projects, real-life case studies, and the integration of technology into everyday teaching.
Cynthia's current research program investigates bacterial lifestyles and their roles in infection and antibiotic resistance. As her research relies heavily on advanced microscopy techniques, she established and is currently the Director of the Microbial Imaging Facility at UTS. This facility has rapidly become recognized as world-leaders in the use of super-resolution microscopy techniques to study microbiology.
David is a marine biologist with research interests in photophysiology and productivity of aquatic primary producers, ranging from microalgae to corals. Prior to joining UTS as an ARC Future Fellow he was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow, and then lecturer in Marine Biogeochemistry, at the University of Essex, UK. At UTS David is a core member of The Climate Change Cluster (C3) where his research focuses on improving marine primary productivity estimates using advanced active fluorometry (bio-optical) approaches. The outcomes from this research will provide more accurate information on the health of Australian coastal waters and be used to improve Global Climate Models. David is also the leader for the C3 Future Reefs research program
In 2015, Prof Jin joined UTS as a chair professor to lead its research strength in Materials and Technology and to establish an integrated research Institute for Biomedical Materials & Devices with a $7m budget. By transforming advances in photonics and materials into revolutionary biomedical technologies, his institute will leverage multi-disciplinary sciences in instrumental physics, materials science, photonics, nanotechnology, molecular biology and engineering to develop a range of research capabilities, and new technology solutions in the areas of cancer, neuron, pathogen, data storage (security), displays, wearable devices, and implantable biomaterials and devices.
Since joining UTS, Prof Jin has established a new team of 20 PhD students, 8 postdoc researchers and 5 visiting research fellows. He developed a new research consortium of four UTS based research groups, four research groups from the University of South Australia, and six Australian biotechnology companies, and successfully secured funding of $6.8 m ($3.7 from ARC) to build the ARC Research Hub for Integrated Device for End-user Analysis at Low-levels (IDEAL Hub).
Xanthe's research focuses on understanding the methods of detecting latent fingermarks on forensic evidence and at crime scenes, and the different factors that affect the success rates of detection processes. Her research also aims to develop better methods to capture fingermarks that may be missed by current processes, using new biomolecular and chemical technologies. Xanthe supervises a collaborative and enthusiastic group of research students working on a multitude of forensic science problems that span from fingermark detection and fingerprint identification to criminalistics and questioned document examination.
Xanthe is an invited member of the International Fingerprint Research Group and a member of the Australian and New Zealand Forensic Science Society. Her research has led to successful collaborations with the Australian Federal Police, NSW Police, Victoria Police, international universities, and funding from the Australian Research Council.
