Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology students and researchers have access to state-of-the-art facilities.
Most of the Faculty's subjects are taught in lectures, tutorials, and lab classes at the UTS City campus.
The Faculty has two learning and design centres (LDC) which provide students with access to lecturers and tutors for individual and small group support, reference material, and software and hardware resources.
All UTS: Engineering students have access to one of the world's first and most advanced remote engineering laboratory. This laboratory enables physical experiments to be conducted across the majority of engineering disciplines online from anywhere in the world. The state-of-the-art laboratory delivers web-based real-time interactive experiences with actual apparatus and equipment.
As a Cisco Regional Academy our fully resourced networking labs are equipped with the latest hardware and these resources can be accessed via Netlab and packet tracer.
UTS: Engineering students also work in civil, electrical and mechanical laboratories giving them practical hands on experience. Also, UTS: Engineering houses the only Shake Table in Australia. The Shake Table is a 3m x 3m earthquake simulator which is used to test the stability of model structures.
Students have access to both UTS computer labs as well as a number of Faculty computer labs, for:
- Building 10 - there are 16 computer labs, four of which are specialist networking labs. In addition there are specialist labs, the:
- Games Studio;
- Creativity and Cognition Studio; and
- Access Grid.
- Buildings 1 and 2 - there are 20 computer labs available for our students with some of these labs being specialist labs that students will use for certain subjects.
The buildings that house the Faculty are wireless and network connected with remote access - students are able to log in from home and have access to a certain amount of space on the server to save their work.
Building 2 houses the student learning areas which provide students with cubicles equipped with audio visual equipment and work areas for study and group work. In Building 10 there is also a first year undergraduate lounge along with kitchen areas and breakout rooms that anyone can use, and reserve, for group work or just to catch up and study with friends.
The facilities are not just about study - there are cafes and comfortable lounge areas, for relaxing between classes and catching up with friends at the end of the day.
