Industry linkage

While the field of electrical, electronic and computer engineering is changing at a challenging pace, the School has continually maintained its research performance at a world-class standard. Important businesses, government departments and organisations have benefited from the collaboration of School of Electrical, Electronic and Computer Engineering (EECE) highly skilled expertise and multi-million-dollar cutting-edge equipment.

Working relationships

We have established strong working relationships with a number of companies. Together with our Industry Advisory Panel, companies support our School's teaching programs and research interests, and proactively seek and employ our School's graduates. The Industry Advisory Panel advises the School on its teaching and research programs, particularly with regard to their relevance to local and international industry needs.

Research centres and groups

EECE has a team of highly skilled and internationally qualified research engineers leading in their specialised fields of research. We conduct original research in electrical and electronic engineering, and information technology areas. The results of these efforts are published in internationally recognised peer reviewed journals. There has been a significant increase in research activity in recent years. Industry linkages and partnerships have continued to grow with the School’s research centres and groups.

Two examples are:

The Microelectronics Research Group
is undertaking a number of government funded research programs, government and industrial contracts, and international collaborations. The group also provides consultancy services in its areas of expertise, and has patented, commercialised and licensed a number of its technologies internationally.
The Optical+Biomedical Engineering Laboratory (OBEL)
conducts research in biomedical engineering at the interfaces of optics, photonics, biology, biotechnology, and medicine; a field often termed "Biomedical Optics" or "Biophotonics". The group's research is directed towards new optical techniques and applications in medicine and the life sciences, with emphasis on biomedical imaging, and the therapeutic use of lasers.
