The focus of the engineering program is research and development in radio astronomy engineering. Key areas of research will focus on high impact contributions to the SKA, and in particular, SKA-LOW. The SKA and its precursors and prototypes provide the overarching context for the engineering program.
Many of the projects address electronic engineering topics which have broad application in the telecommunications, defence and space sectors, and graduates in this field work across a wide range of institutions and industries.
Engineering has 2 major fields that our courses explore.
