About The Murdoch School of Engineering & Information Technology

STEM.JPGCurrently, more than 1,000 students are enrolled in over 30 degree options at undergraduate and postgraduate level, pursuing a number of professional disciplines, including chemistry, engineering, information technology, mathematics and statistics, physics, extractive metallurgy and energy studies.  Students of the school enjoy the use of a new $10.1 million teaching and research facility, opened in 2011.  The new building provides students with a real world experience and serves as a fully-integrated home base for the School.

The School of Engineering and Information Technology is an innovative faculty where students can pursue their studies in a stimulating learning environment.  Our school features world-class facilities and a highly qualified faculty, focussed on preparing students for careers in dynamic and challenging sectors.

We are making significant contributions to sustainable energy research and education through the Murdoch University Energy Research and Innovation Group (MUERI). Additionally, our Computer Science research covers a range of topics including image recognition and processing, parallel computing, complex adaptive systems and bioinformatics. Information Systems research within the school covers social, cultural and organisational aspects of IT, with major research themes including end-user computing, computing education and decision support, HCI, multimedia and culture-specific developments.


Unearthed Hackathon

Unearthed Hackathon 1 - Credit Matt Schild.jpgAfter a gruelling 54 hour hackathon, Murdoch students Corey Barritt, Brice Gower, Ryan Santos and Louis Williams accept their prize from Adam Stevens, production manager at Worsley Alumina (South32). The Murdoch students (three from Electrical Engineering) won first prize for their design of a “smart padlock” that will virtually eliminate mistakes and injuries to workers isolating sections of industrial plants during maintenance. The students plan to commercialise their design using their prize money and the many valuable contacts they made during the event. We congratulate them for their hard work and creativity.
