Research at the School of Engineering and Computer Science
Researchers in the School of Engineering and Computer Science are contributing to important advances in science, technology, and engineering.
Our world-leading research is undertaken in a dozen research groups, broadly covering artificial intelligence, computer graphics, mechatronics, networking, programming languages, and wireless communications.
Over 90 students are engaged in postgraduate studies, with around 70 at PhD level. Students come from around the world and contribute to the School's vibrant atmosphere. Masters and PhD students contribute significantly to our research in all fields, presenting their research at international conferences and in leading academic journals.
We have research collaborations with other Schools at Te Herenga Waka—Victoria University of Wellington, in particular Bioinformatics, Applied Lingustics, Physics, and Mathematics and Statistics. We also work closely closely with Wellington UniVentures, the University's commercialisation company.
Wellington is at the heart of science and technology in New Zealand, and our researchers maintain close links with industry, enabling their work to move rapidly into the commercial world and make a positive impact. We work closely with Wellington-based organisations including Industrial Research Limited, New Zealand Registry Services, and Magritek.
These collaborations provide our students with an enriched study experience, access to a wide range of facilities, and the opportunity to work with potential employers during research placements.
We have a depth of knowledge that makes us able to address a wide range of modern engineering problems. If you are interested in doing research with us, or have an idea for a project of common interest, please contact us.
