Learning and teaching fully online is a challenging task as it requires maximum engagement with fellow students and the course convenor to create a sense of online community among distance learners.

Scholarships of $35,000 (AUD) are available for PhD students who have achieved Honours 1/High Distinction in their UG program and/or have completed a Masters by Research.
Achieving appreciable thrust for both cruise and accelerating flight in scramjet engines is only half the solution for a viable engine. Equally important, is the design and validation of a vehicle structure capable of withstanding the sustained high thermal loads, and the resulting thermally induced structural stresses.
Micro aerial robotics has been a nascent research interest due to its vast application potential. There have been a number of potential designs that have been tested including fixed wing, quadrotors, rotatory etc. as a suitable platforms. However these platforms are unsuitable at smaller scales due to a number of factors including aerodynamics inefficiency and limited maneuverability [1&2].
The aim of this project is to investigate the transition experience of students beginning an engineering degree. Of particular interest are the minority groups in engineering: women, mature age students, and at UNSW Canberra, civilian students in an otherwise military cohort.
Over the years, we have developed state-of-the-art distributed multi-agent system capable of modelling reciprocal competitive interactions between blue and red teams. Our systems can reason in real-time and explain emerging behaviours. This project will design distributed artificial intelligence algorithms for the agents within our system.
The Southern Hemisphere radar stations in Australia (Tidbinbilla, Parkes and Narrabri) provide a good platform to detect asteroids and study their trajectories and properties. Based on real measurements obtained through these stations, the project aims at providing signal processing tools to analyse planetary radar signals of near-earth objects, i.e., asteroids.
The aim of this project is to research network coding techniques for ultra-low latency communication systems. Specifically, this project will investigate techniques and methods to improve the latency performance and efficiency of future low-latency wireless communication systems.
This project’s aim is to facilitate optimal decision making for multi stakeholder system design. This study will investigation available preference modelling methods and asses their utility for integration with Tradespace exploration techniques.
Quantum mechanics was developed as a theory of atomic behaviour. It was soon applied to light, assemblies of atoms, and subatomic particles. More recently, electrical circuits and mechanical systems operating in the quantum regime have been realized. This raises the question as to what, if any, are the ultimate limits to the application of quantum mechanics to physical systems.
The pervasive cyber threat to DoDs, public sector and industry means cyber vulnerability and penetration assessment (CVPA) and testing is no longer an option but rather about managing an acceptable risk of how much testing is enough (Christensen, 2017 & 2015).
