Innovation through ingenuity

Macquarie has a strong record of innovation. We helped develop the technology that underpins modern wifi systems, we lead the world in environmental science and the impacts of a changing climate on society and industry, and we pioneered online treatments for mental health conditions, providing cost effective access to advice and support for residents of the most remote parts of our country.

Additionally, we are the only Australian university to be involved with several innovative international research projects with leading universities and organisations. These include Parkinson’s disease research with The Michael J. Fox Foundation, construction of a fully synthesised yeast chromosome and the development of 5G wireless technologies.
