The degree in Engineering from University of Technology Sydney  is awarded to candidates who, through original investigation, make a distinct and significant contribution to knowledge in their field of specialisation.

The faculty's policy is one of close interaction with industry and the profession, and of seeking to contribute directly to the advancement of Australian engineering practice. Applied research programs and studies involving a direct relationship with industry are strongly encouraged. The majority of research conducted by faculty staff is supported by industry sources.


Candidates are required to complete a thesis under the supervision of appropriate members of academic staff. A formal course of study or other work may also be prescribed.

There are three specific stages to the doctoral program to frame and support the progress of the candidate and their study.

The doctoral program includes the formalisation and/or introduction of a number of introductory and advanced modules, including subjects covering research preparation and research methods, to support the research and professional development of the student.

Research student progress is supported and reviewed through a doctoral study plan (DSP). Students design their own DSP in consultation with their supervisor(s). In the first stage, the DSP is based on the student's academic and professional background and his or her goals. The second and third stages are based on the progress of his or her study. Candidates are assessed prior to advancing to the next stage of their candidature and submit, in consultation with their supervisor(s), a review of progress at the end of each session.


Career options include positions in universities and other institutions undertaking research or other academic work including teaching. Opportunities involving research and development also exist with national and international firms.
