  • Atmospheric Plasma Lab - Students can gain practical experience working with PlasmaLeap zero-emissions reactors to make tomorrow’s green fuels and chemicals a reality today.

Our Location

The Faculty of Engineering is adjacent to Tech Central, Australia’s largest technology and innovation hub. A thriving precinct of multi-disciplinary research centred around three core nodes of science, technology and entrepreneurship. 

  • Eveleigh leads a thriving ecosystem of deep tech innovation spanning Quantum, AI, Cyber and robotics.  
  • Haymarket and its surrounding neighbourhoods are buzzing with major digital and creative innovators.  
  • Located on our main campus in Camperdown is a major node of biomedical innovation. Our new Engineering and Technology Precinct building consists of nine levels of student spaces and world-class facilities and laboratories, all within walking distance from the Faculty of Engineering.
