Research in the Faculty

The research undertaken in the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technologies is multidisciplinary and centred around the key themes of field robotics, agricultural engineering, biomedical engineering and technologies, human-centred technology, complex systems, materials and structures, food processing, clean, intelligent energy networks, and water and the environment.

These research themes break down conventional disciplinary barriers and enable us to work collaboratively to develop truly holistic solutions to today’s big issues.

Our research themes


We operate a number of government and industry sponsored centres.

Philanthropy plays a critical role in our evolution and growth and we must build on this foundation to ensure we remain a great public university. It allows us to explore new research initiatives, take advantage of opportunities as they arise, launch new programs and recruit world-class researchers to address the real-world challenges we face today.
