University of Wollongong

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Postgraduate
CRICOS: 00102E

The research involved in producing a doctoral (PhD) dissertation involves a significant contribution to a field of knowledge. Each PhD candidate has two supervisors. The Faculty will ensure that a supervisor with appropriate expertise is allocated to a candidate at the time of application. Students are encouraged to identify potential supervisors who match their area of research interest by visiting the Faculty's web pages. Students are also advised to make contact with a potential supervisor to discuss their project prior to applying for admission. Visit UOW's Research & Innovation website for information regarding the University's research activity, research strengths, scholarships and services.

Structure

The University of Wollongong has a distinguished engineering research reputation, particularly in collaboration with industry, both in Australia and internationally. This world-class research has led to the creation of a number of Centres of Excellence, which has attracted a critical mass of researchers engaged in significant, well-funded projects with superior equipment infrastructure. This concentration of high-quality research has ensured that Engineering at UOW is part of the Go8 - Group of Eight & Associates, the top research faculties in Australia. Engineering research is supported by well-equipped laboratories and workshops and a highly skilled team of support staff. There is a major off-campus facility for large scale projects and pilot plant development. The use of resources by external collaborators from industry is encouraged and enquiries are invited. PhD scholars have significant freedom in their choice of project and the way the research is conducted and so such studies provide a significant opportunity to make an original contribution to the core of engineering knowledge. Even to those who eventually intend to become managers of engineering enterprises, the skills in problem-solving, the ingenuity of experimentation and the critical analysis of results, all of which are acquired in a research degree, are immensely valuable.
