Postgraduate eguide : 2010
32 www.uow.edu.au/future/postgrad postgraduate guIde 2010 A dynamic teaching, learning and research environment covering all underlying disciplines of the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) sector has been created in a single Faculty at UOW, the Faculty of Informatics. A culture of strong industry collaboration informs course design to ensure our courses are workplace focused; keeping pace with changes within specific ICT sectors and the broader demands of the marketplace. With a tailor-made curriculum suited to industry and employer needs, Informatics postgraduate programs will place you at the helm of this rapidly developing science, and equip you with the skills required to participate in the global knowledge economy. Our informatics courses also have a high degree of flexibility, allowing you to tailor them to your personal interests. The Faculty is one of the largest sites of ICT research in the southern hemisphere, and has strong industrial links with major international companies and collaborative projects with partners including Hawker de Havilland, Motorola, Telstra, Bluescope, Boeing, Apple, Sun Microsystems, Accenture and Andrew Corporation. Major recruiting fairs are held each year where leading firms come directly to the campus to interview students. The Faculty is a preferred source of employees for Telstra and Motorola, with major international and Australian firms recruiting graduates straight from the University. Many smaller firms from the local area and from Sydney also come to UOW to source employees. ReseaRch OppORtunities Below are a sample of research topics being investigated at UOW.
