Schools, departments and research centres


At the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology, we recognise that multiple skillsets are needed to drive technological innovation. To maximise interdisciplinary cross collaboration and research synergy, departments within the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology (FEIT) are organised into three overarching schools. Our schools are designed as portals to drive the cross-fertilisation of ideas, skills and vision among students, researchers and industry partners.
