At the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering we solve real-world problems through fundamental and applied research.
We have particular research expertise in areas where technological and societal change is driving demand for innovative solutions—from electricity storage and transmission right through to disease diagnosis and treatment.
We aim to provide the highest quality student supervision and a supportive research environment with strong linkages to local and international partners.
Higher degrees by research
You can undertake a research degree with the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering in your chosen area of interest. We offer two postgraduate research degrees:
The Master of Philosophy (MPhil) is a two-year full-time (or part-time equivalent) commitment, and teaches you about applying research methodology to critically evaluate literature and results in your field.
The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) is our flagship research award and is the standard qualification for a research career or academic position.
By studying a research degree with the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, you can undertake a research project in an area of interest.
In either degree you’ll be supported by one of our research supervisors.
