THE FUTURE IS BIG.
THE FUTURE IS SCIENCE AT SYDNEY. JOIN US.


From investigating the big questions about how our universe began to enabling the first big calculations done with quantum computers, and from helping to build the worlds biggest radio telescope to unravelling big earth systems, scientists in the University of Sydney’s Faculty of Science are working on our big future.

Our astronomers are working on numerous projects to help plan and build the Square Kilometre Array, which will be the largest and most sensitive radio telescope ever built, and partly situated in Australia.

Our quantum physicists are revolutionising computing with the first steps in quantum computing – a whole new world of computing that will allow for huge calculations that can’t be done by current computers.

Our ecologists are exploring big systems in biology, and our geoscientists are uncovering how big ocean and plate tectonic systems work.
