Our UNSW School of Electrical Engineering and Telecommunications is active in a wide range of research, broadly grouped into the following key disciplines: 

  • Energy Systems 
  • Nano/Micro Systems 
  • Systems and Control 
  • Signal Processing 
  • Telecommunications (wireless, data networks, photonics) 

Our researchers are not only engaged in projects within the school but are also active in various centres such as: Australian Centre for Space Engineering Research, ASCER 

  • Australian National Fabrication Facility, ANFF  
  • Center for Energy and Environmental Markets, CEEM  
  • Centre for Quantum Computer Technology, CQC2T  
  • CSIRO DATA61, DATA61 

Energy systems research focuses on advanced power conversion and power systems applications which include the electricity grid, automotive and aerospace applications, and energy market economy.

The Microsystems Research Group conducts research over a diverse range of disciplines, covering the study and manufacture of electronic devices and components in the nanometre and several hundreds of microns scale.

Systems and control research at UNSW focuses on cross-disciplinary activity with applications drawn from any discipline where dynamic systems are relevant.

The Telecommunications Research Group consists of research and teaching in four broad areas: wireless communications, data network, signal processing and photonics.
