Experts in their field
The outstanding calibre of our academic staff means we consistently rank among the top one percent of research universities in the world. As a student, you'll be taught by some of these leading researchers, and in some cases you'll have the chance to contribute to their work. The research undertaken in the faculty is multidisciplinary and centred around the key themes of biomedical engineering and technology, clean energy, complex systems, materials and structures, robotics and water and the environment. For those considering a career in research, our faculty has a large number of research opportunities.
Incorporating technology and equipment for interactive study, research and collaboration, our labs, teaching spaces and learning hubs are designed to help you get the most out of your learning experience.
