Learn from our technology experts

The Information Technology lecturers at Murdoch University are working on some of the world’s most exciting technology advances. They’ve already helped make our Wi-Fi more reliable. They’ve built robots. They’ve even created apps to help stroke survivors recover faster.

Our Murdoch students have also achieved some amazing things, like creating games to help burns victims to get moving again, improving training for radiology students, and launching an online tool allowing medical experts to treat patients in remote areas.

Take a tour of our brand new IT facilities

If you’re interested in IT, you’ll love learning in our brand new Information Technology Innovation Hub. The IT hub is fitted out with the latest mixed and augmented reality equipment, industry grade networking and security infrastructure as well as an operational data centre, allowing you to keep pace with the IT industry and developing trends.

All lab spaces have 24-hour walk-in access, can be synced to your own devices and are IoT enabled, so you will be exposed to, and develop an understanding of, programmable smart technology. The IT Innovation Hub is the first of its kind in a Western Australian university.

As an IT student, you can utilise this hub for hands-on learning, as well as a space to work with other students from all IT specialisations. You’ll have the freedom to get creative, collaborate and experiment, while building vital communication and teamwork skills.  You’ll also gain familiarity and practice in a high-performance operational computing environment, which will be highly valuable in the eyes of employers when you graduate.

Murdoch has a commitment to providing an excellent learning experience and was recently recognised in the Good Universities Guide 2019.  We rank number one in Australia for ‘Teaching Quality’ and ‘Skills Development’ in Computing and Information Systems as well as being awarded a five out of five stars for ‘overall educational experience’ in Computing and Information Systems.
