About the Research Engineering Facility

The facility

The Research Engineering Facility is hosted within QUT’s Institute of Future Environments and provides specialist, cross-organisational research engineering services in support of some of QUT’s strategic research strengths, such as:

  • RPAS and aviation services
  • robotics and autonomous systems
  • energy systems (including battery development and applied superconductivity)
  • structural and civil engineering services

Additionally, we manage and operate two of QUT’s distributed sites, the Banyo Pilot Plant Precinct and the Da Vinci Precinct.

We are the custodian of QUT’s Remotely Piloted Aircraft Operators Certificate (CASA.ReOC.0466), allowing QUT researchers to safely and legitimately collect drone data from sites Australia-wide.

World-class expertise

Our primary focus is to provide cross-organisational research engineering services such as design, systems integration and data collection, management and processing. This broad range of capabilities is led by expert researchers and technicians. Our team consists of specialist programmers, designers, technologists, engineers, pilots and project managers, complemented by supporting world-class infrastructure assets.
