Defence & Security
The University has worked extensively over many years with the Department of Defence and defence organisations in a variety of ways including in an advisory capacity, as a research partner, and as an organisation that produces high quality graduates ready for work in the defence sector.
Whilst the University is an open environment, we understand the sensitivities that can be associated with defence work and so have staff cleared for national security and can avail ourselves of facilities at the Defence, Science and Technology Group (DST) for classified data.
Our researchers regularly engage in innovative partnerships with DST, Defence SA, the Defence Teaming Centre (DTC) and the Rapid Prototype Development and Evaluation (RPDE), leading to strong in-house capabilities.
