Defence Systems

Defence is one of the world’s largest, most diverse and technologically advanced industries. Working as an engineer in this field could see you innovating in areas such as: visual and situational awareness systems; military communications and networking; radar and electronic countermeasures; cybersecurity; marine engineering; and autonomous systems.

In our Defence Systems major, you can undertake courses related to complex systems, human factors and systems engineering, through which you’ll gain hands-on experience working with defence organisations in South Australia.

The Australian defence sector has a significant need for skilled engineers, computer scientists and mathematicians to deliver large, highly complex projects. Equipped with the advanced technical skills and knowledge to drive and support defence technologies, a wide range of careers will be on offer to you—spanning everything from working with aircraft to electrical systems and communications technology.
