Research School of Engineering

The Research School of Engineering at The Australian National University is a creative mix of staff and students that embrace the breadth of the engineering professions from materials and manufacturing through to robotics to telecommunications and systems and control of massively complex networks.

Our undergraduate students study what is known as 'Systems Engineering'. This interdisciplinary approach to engineering is unique in Australia. Students learn the theory and practice of engineering in a very holistic way through a wide variety of courses. Graduate coursework and graduate research students are offered subjects and training for their future research and industry careers.

Our research covers a broad range of areas in engineering including: computer vision, materials and manufacturing, robotics, semiconductor, photovoltaic, solar thermal energy and solar cell technologies, systems and control, and telecommunications and signal processing.
