UNSW Engineering Research Centres
Contributing to world class research
The Faculty of Engineering hosts a number of world class research centres categorised as: National Research Centres, Cooperative Research Centres, and University Research Centres. A listing of these centres is provided below.
UNSW researchers are world leaders in this field which offers the strongest potential for providing a sustainable energy future.
Autonomous systems, the physical embodiment of machine intelligence, are the focus of this ARC Centre at UNSW.
Listed as one of the ten major challenges in science and engineering this century – UNSW is right there amongst Quantum Computation.
NICTA's mission is to build Australia's Information and Communication Technology research capability as a wealth-generator.
The Centre has played a key role in the development of the Australian aerospace industry.
CO2CRC researches the logistic, technical, financial and environmental issues of storing industrial carbon dioxide emissions in deep geological formations.
Enhancing the properties of thermoplastic and thermoset polymers so they can be used more widely and effectively in Australian manufacturing.
Creating ‘enabling technologies’ for smart Internet applications that will allow users and network providers to manage access and complexity.
The mission of the CRC-SI is to develop the concept of a Virtual Australia, uniting research and commercial innovation in SI.
