Education and Training College

The establishment of our SmartSat education and training college is progressing well with current activity including the finalisation of the education and training program Strategy and planning for our first college workshop in late October/early November.

The SmartSat aims to graduate 73 PhD students and will play a critical role in providing a platform for new generations of innovators to advance their research careers, and develop their ideas and innovations within key research areas.

Applications are now open for our HDR scholarships, of up to 3 years duration for PhD and Masters by Research students, for commencement in 2020. Successful candidates will be enrolled with one of our university partners and will work on applied R&D which align with our research programs.
