ENGINEERING AND IT RESEARCH AREAS

Engineering

Provides practising engineers with an opportunity to pursue, in depth, the solution to an engineering problem that requires individual effort beyond the scope of a bachelor's degree.

Computing Science

Graduates extend and deepen their knowledge in a specialised area of computing, advancing their career in computing and information technology. The degree offers flexibility in the choice of research topic so it may be closely aligned with students' professional careers.

Analytics

There is a skills shortage in analytics and the demand for skilled professionals with work-ready skills in this area crosses a range of industries. UTS is at the forefront of analytics education in Australia with its focus on practice based, interdisciplinary analytics and decision-making research. UTS encourages students to focus on real world business problems in their own organisations and develop solutions as part of their research.

Doctor of Philosophy (Engineering, Software Engineering, Computer Systems, Analytics)

The PhD is a University-wide degree which involves an intense period of supervised study and research, culminating in the submission of a thesis. The degree is awarded to candidates who, through original investigation, make a distinct and significant contribution to knowledge in their field of specialisation. The faculty's policy is one of close interaction with industry and the professions, and of seeking to contribute directly to the advancement of Australian engineering and IT practice.
