No profession unleashes the spirit of innovation like engineering. From research to real-world applications, engineers constantly discover how to improve our lives by creating bold new solutions that connect science to life in unexpected, forward-thinking ways. Few professions turn so many ideas into so many realities. Few have such a direct and positive effect on people’s everyday lives.
At UNSW Canberra’s School of Engineering and Information Technology, our mission is to educate the women and men who will lead Australia's defence and technology future. We aim to present a richer image of engineering that includes not just the current state of the art in Defence-relevant technologies, but also provides the context that makes technology important. We are developing a community of learners through outreach and education who will make our country stronger through innovation.
Our job is to create leaders who have a passion for life-long learning. We constantly innovate the educational environment, taking advantage of our unique situation, relationships, and student body. Our goal is to encourage young people from all backgrounds to consider a career in engineering to prepare Australia to meet the challenges of the future.
