School of Electrical Engineering and Computing
The School of Electrical Engineering and Computing offers undergraduate and postgraduate study in Computer Science, Computer Systems Engineering, Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Energy Studies, Information Technology and Software Engineering. In conjunction with the School of Engineering, we also offer undergraduate study in Mechatronics. From 2018 we will also be offering a new multidisciplinary Bachelor of Medical Engineering (Honours) program with significant input from mechanical, biomedical sciences and science academics.
Our programs are underpinned by some of the most exciting research in Australia. In the Australian Research Council research excellence ratings we are one of only three universities in Australia to receive a top rating of '5' for Electrical and Electronic Engineering across all three assessments (2010, 2012 and 2015). We are also ranked in the world's top 250 for Computer Science & Information Systems and Electrical & Electronic Engineering subjects.

In their final year our students bring theory and practice together in sophisticated design projects. For example, Luke Simmons designed a control system driven prosthetic hand that responds to the electrical impulses in muscle tissue.
Darwin-OPThere's nothing like a little competition to make things interesting. The NUbots, our robotic soccer team, use their artificial intelligence and robotics expertise to program Darwin-OP robots to compete in RoboCup. In 2014 they flew to Brazil to take part in the championship.
Makerspace is a student hackerspace community and open lab workspace that offers cutting edge equipment like a PCB mill and 3D printer to support students working and collaborating on their uni work and personal projects.
