School of Engineering & Information Technology

Be Part of Something Bigger

Engineering forms the foundation of the technologies that enhance the quality of our modern lives. From smart buildings and the Sydney Harbour Bridge to space travel and fast cars, engineers have shaped the way our world works. Engineers also tackle some of the world’s biggest problems. As we face global challenges presented by a changing climate, food and water scarcity, loss of biodiversity, and globalisation, the skills of engineers will only become more important. 

The School of Engineering and Information Technology (SEIT) at UNSW Canberra is an innovative community of students, educators, and researchers committed to building a healthier, more sustainable future. From cybersecurity and software engineering to sustainable infrastructure and space technologies, our mission is to foster the next generation of technology decision-makers that will shape Australia’s defence and security future.
