Our strategic focus
We aim to prepare graduates for the careers of the future. We do this by harnessing emerging technologies to facilitate borderless, personalised education and by conducting research that informs our teaching programs and impacts the communities we serve.
We're committed to extending the boundaries of science, technology and design through close relationships with professional associations, other education providers, industry and government across Australia and internationally.
We actively foster partnerships with relevant organisations, like-minded universities and our alumni. This engagement helps to improve our graduate outcomes and globally relevant research.

Our vision is to conduct research that focuses on issues affecting our surrounding environment, recognises the current challenges society face and then finds innovative ways to solve them for the future. We’re proud of the contribution that our research makes to people’s lives on a local, national and international level.
Our strong research reputation is underpinned by our exceptional national and international industry links and partnerships. Our researchers actively engage with businesses, government and community groups, and collaborate to discover meaningful solutions to current social, economic, technical and environmental challenges.
We're committed to engaging young minds with the possibilities of studying architecture and built environment, engineering, information technology, and life and environmental sciences. Our outreach programs give secondary school students the opportunity to experience a range of interactive and hands-on programs and workshops across our study areas.
