    Healthcare solutions are increasingly dependent on the innovative use of modern technologies. Recognising this changing healthcare landscape, our Master of Health Technology Innovation is a professional degree for those seeking to broaden their career options and take advantage of exciting opportunities in this emerging field.

  • Our research in engineering and IT

    The annual Research Conversazione event showcases the innovation and progressive research being undertaken by our engineering and IT experts.

  • Cosmic cinema: astronomers make real-time, 3D movies of plasma tubes drifting overhead

    "For over 60 years, scientists believed these structures existed but by imaging them for the first time, we've provided visual evidence that they are really there," said Cleo Loi of the ARC Centre of Excellence for All-sky Astrophysics (CAASTRO) and School of Physics at the University of Sydney.

  • The galaxy has more planets than stars.

    The galaxy has more planets than stars.

    Our astronomers are finding out new things about our galaxy all the time. When you look at the night sky, it's filled with stars, but the vast majority have planets orbiting - after all, there are eight planets orbiting our star, the sun. We know that planets are abundant, especially Earth-sized planets and other planets larger than Earth. Most recently, University of Sydney scientists have discovered the oldest sun-like star surrounded by orbiting planets, which shows that such planets have been forming since just after the universe began.

  • Agricultural robotics

    Agricultural robotics

    Professor of Robotics and Intelligent Systems, Salah Sukkarieh, is creating robots that will transform modern farming and help ensure the global food supply keeps up with a growing population. He sees a future where robots will tend farm animals, crops and orchards, making farming more efficient and sustainable.

  • Executive Leadership in Major Projects (ELMP) program

    Members of the first cohort for the John Grill Centre's Executive Leadership in Major Projects (ELMP) program, John Grill Centre for Project Leadership talk about their experiences at the program.

  • The man who measures uncertainty

    Fabio Ramos talks about risks involved in everything from robots to geothermal exploration.

  • Positive computing

    Positive computing

    Associate Professor Rafael Calvo is leading a team of software engineers to develop a revolutionary online tool to support young people living with mental health issues. They are adapting online tracking techniques used by marketing analysts in an internet-based tool dubbed CyberMate. The aim is to design algorithms that will give CyberMate the ability to screen social networking pages for comments that may indicate potential for self-harm and then engage with online users suggesting options for help or support.
