The School of Engineering and Information Technology (SEIT) is one of the four schools of the University of New South Wales located at the Australian Defence Force Academy campus in Canberra. Outstanding research is a key focus for the School. This inspires our approach to teaching and other activities in the School. The School's diverse research interests span our base disciplines and reach into a wide variety of application areas including space, control, cyber security, air-traffic management, complex imaging and many others.
The research funding to the School comes from various sources including the Australian Research Council, Centre of Excellence, Research Networks, the Department of Defence, Defence Science and Technology Organisation and the University of New South Wales along with other private organisations. The research output from the School has shown excellent growth with as many as nearly 350 publications included in the Higher Education Research Data Collection. The School is encouraging quality research and healthy competition inside the School by innovative ideas like special awards for Excellence in Research Publications for Academics and Ph.D. scholars. The number of publications in highly ranked journals as well as high impact journals has increased considerably over the last few years.
A number of academics in the School received high recognitions in the last year enhancing the profile of the School significantly. Professor Ian Petersen was elected a fellow of the Australian Academy of Science and was awarded the prestigious Australian Research Council (ARC) Laureate Fellowship. Dr Sameer Alam was one of the ACT Young Tall Poppies of the year for being an outstanding young scientist.
The number and quality of Ph.D. scholars is increasing continuously indicating the involvement of the School in research training. The School has been able to attract quality students from various countries around the world, providing a dynamic work force.
This research report summarises the research achievements of the School's community during the year 2011.
