There is a number of mechanisms which enable us to engage with industry partners depending on the nature and urgency of the work.
Our expertise includes optimisation, statistical signal processing, modelling, prediction, data science, machine learning
and software and hardware development.
Consultancies are best for high-priority work. Types of consultancy work include the following:
- Algorithm design and implementation
- Software and hardware development
- Commissioned report on state-of-the-art solutions to particular problems
- Simulation studies
- Expert witness.
Government-funded grants from the Australian Research Council's Linkage Programs,
the Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resource's funding schemes and
other sources are well-suited to collaborative research projects spanning three or more years. This funding can be used to hire a postgraduate researcher to work
full-time on the research project. Such projects can deliver highly innovative solutions.
Industry-funded Ph.Ds provide a cost-effective means of exploring novel solutions while simultaneously training a potential future recruit.
In the first year of candidature the Ph.D. student will take appropriate graduate-level courses while developing a thorough understanding of the
research project. The bulk of the research is carried out in the second and third years.
Industry-aligned Capstone Projects are an opportunity to work with final-year engineering students on a year-long project of
your choosing. The only commitment is in the form of weekly or fortnightly meetings with the students during semesters.
