PhD and MPhil
Our postgraduate students have access to excellent research facilities including a modern, fully automated antenna-testing laboratory, a microwave laboratory equipped for 50GHz electronic device and antenna characterisation and development, measurement systems for distortion, nonlinear network analysis and pulse testing, and a fiber-optics and photonics laboratory equipped for the development and testing of broadband active and passive optical devices and fibre-based systems, with optical network analysis capability to 20GHz. Engineering @ Macquarie is one of very few in Australia providing access to industry-standard software for microelectronic design. Additionally, through Faculty of Science and Engineering, the Department has access to excellent workshop support facilities, a clean room for microelectronic and optical device fabrication and a high-power femtosecond laser facility.
At Macquarie University, the research programs in Engineering are underpinned by world-class expertise in the key technologies of microelectronics, microwave devices, linear and nonlinear guided-wave optics and photonics, electromagnetics and antennas, error-control coding, network performance analysis, speech processing and recognition, and large-scale electronic system design and communication system technologies. Further details of our research are available in the Research Section.
