Research project highlights
Our School is at the forefront of civil, environmental and geospatial engineering research, working annually with over 100 industry and government organisations. Indeed, the importance we place on the movement of our research to industry practice cannot be overstated.
We share with you shares some of our research insights and visions for local and global futures in construction, environmental, geospatial, infrastructure, transport, and water engineering in the new digital, disruptive diverse world.
No longer can we assume that public transport is a government delivered service with public good and system optimisations as its main objectives
Funded by insurance industries and transport authorities, Vinayak and his team are asking some fundamental questions raised by AV travel.
Dr David Rey has developed routing and scheduling algorithms for leading transport organisations to demonstrate howon-demand transport could work in a range of different scenarios
Dr Lauren Gardner’s work is so unique she has developed a new discipline to accommodate it. Bio-secure Mobility is at the crossover between engineering and public health.
The maths behind future proffing our water resources. A/Prof Lucy Marshall and her research team are exploring Approximate Bayesian Computation.
The ‘unbuilt’ environment – Nature – has been seen for long decades as either bountiful resource or unwilling victim to the march of the hard hatted army by civil engineers. Instead of always ‘moving forward’, can we enact a kind of return, a return to the genius of natural systems to heal our ailing planet?
The Centre for Transformational Environmental Technology is UNSW’s first research base outside of Australia and will be a hub for the large-scale translation of UNSW environmental research into industrial application in China.
How can the digital and adaptable revolution help build a sustainable future for the construction industry? Some believe this is the future of construction. Innovative financiers across the globe are supporting this business model.
A state-of-the-art technological development and Dr Shen and his Linke & Linke partners are at the forefront despite the company being an SME enterprise which has received only relatively small amounts of funding. It is an amazing achievement of collaboration and planning.
Over the last few years CVEN Associate Professor Hamid Vali Pour has been investigating the possibilities of engineered STC wood product - the new materials revolutionising construction.
A research project led by Associate Professor Arnaud Castel aims at transforming the concrete industry by implementing a new low carbon concrete technology.
Humanitarian engineering is experiencing a period of unprecedented global growth. With increasingly complex challenges threatening vulnerable and marginalised communities around the world, academics, researchers and students from UNSW are part of the push to grow this vital ‘people-centric’ engineering philosophy.
Humanitarian engineering in action: rCITI/ OzHarvest project was to develop a multi-objective dynamic vehicle routing algorithm that would help OzHarvest pick up and deliver the largest amount of food to the most appropriate location, with minimal wastage.
Professor Chongmin Song is actively seeking partners to explore the potential of virtual cities. His vision is to provide the underpinning computational structural analysis needed to build a fully integrated virtual reality model of a city that includes all the physical and functional data.
Em Prof Chris Rizos ‘going from analogue to digital is having huge impacts'. He believes there is a geospatial revolution happening in positioning, mapping and remote sensing.
Researchers work on developing clean-up technologies for per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) and perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) in our water supplies
