Creating a better world through Engineering and IT

The Melbourne School of Engineering (MSE) is an international leader in Engineering and IT research. Our aim is to create a better world by devising technological solutions to significant problems.

Our research into new engineering and IT solutions will be crucial in creating a future that uses resources efficiently, effectively, and within environmental constraints.

Our interdisciplinary teams are made up of researchers from across the School, the University and other tertiary institutions within Australia and around the world, working in collaboration with our industry and government partners.

We focus on solving large problems faced by society, ensuring our research has a profound impact. Innovative research into areas such as water resource management, clean energy, disaster management, climate change, safer and more efficient transport, cancer treatment, food processing, automated interpretation of data, personalised medicine, and smart grids are a few examples of the research we are currently engaged in.

Measured on research income, we are one of the largest engineering research institutions in Australia. We are home to large-scale research consortia such as the Centre for Neural Engineering, the Centre for Disaster Management and Public Safety and the Melbourne Networked Society Institute. We have close, ongoing partnerships with IBM Research, Rubicon, the Peter Cook Centre for Carbon Capture and Storage, Dairy Innovation Australia Ltd, Microsoft, Rio Tinto and Ford, and we work at project level with many more private and public sector organisations in Australia and internationally.

We have some of Australia’s most distinguished research and academic staff in the fields of engineering and IT, including a Prime Minister’s Prize Winner, Fellows of the Royal Society, an Australian Research Council Laureate and Future Fellows, and Eureka Prize winners.

Current research programs in which we are developing innovative new engineering and IT solutions for include: energy, transport, water and environment, food and agribusiness, building and construction, advanced manufacturing, mining, data and society, cybersecurity, defence, medical and pharmaceutical technologies.
