Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Sydney

Redefine what's possible

Be prepared for the careers of tomorrow

At Sydney, your career comes first. We’ll help you develop your skills in critical thinking, networking and leadership throughout your degree, so you can enter the workforce with confidence.

Our students work closely with leading academics, researchers and industry partners to create smarter ways of running our planet. They help airlines to fly cleaner and farmers to increase crop yields, explore deep under water or in outer space and bring solar power to remote communities.

Our alumni have become project managers in construction, energy and financial services, electrical engineers in telecommunications systems, civil engineers in government and public policy, data analysts and computer programmers. They work in disaster recovery and humanitarian aid, renewable energy, medical device manufacture, vehicle and engine design and software solutions. Engineering and computer science are the fields of the future.

“What we consider to be impossible are simply engineering problems,” physics professor and futurist Michio Kaku.
