Overview

Robots and autonomous systems are changing the way we live, work and play.

They’re used in industries like health, transport, manufacturing, mining, agriculture, and even in energy and environmental sensing.

Our work focuses on the development of technology that can be used to improve our understanding and management of the world around us.

Our courses

Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Mechatronics)

"I chose to study mechatronics as it focused on the design, control and interactions of both mechanical and electrical systems. By adding robotics as a second study area I gained further insight and depth. I’m now an automation engineer on working on control systems from individual robots to whole manufacturing lines."

Amy Gunnell

Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Mechatronics)

Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Electrical and Aerospace)

"QUT’s focus on real work connections prepared me to enter the aerospace industry. I worked on unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) as part of a Vacation Research Experience Scheme project and while undertaking work experience at the Australian Research Centre for Aerospace Automation. As a graduate I have joined Airbus; one of the largest, international aerospace companies."

Our research

Our research focuses on the development of technology that can be used to improve our understanding and management of the world around us.

Our goal is to create robots that can operate in and interact with the world in the same complex ways as humans.

Our researchers are internationally recognised for their work in areas such as vision-based tracking, manipulation of objects and enabling navigation of mobile robots.

Australian Centre for Robotic Vision

Researchers from our discipline lead the Australian Centre for Robotic Vision (ACRV) at QUT which is creating a new generation of robots.

These robots can understand their environment using the sense of vision, a missing capability preventing robots from performing in complex and changing environments.
