Welcome to the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technologies at the University of Sydney.

As one of the top top 30 Engineering and Technology Universities according to the QS World Rankings, we will provide you with the skills to develop innovative, creative and sustainable solutions that promote positive change worldwide.

Our degrees are accredited by the relevant professional bodies and you will graduate with globally recognised qualifications, making you highly sought after by employers all over the world.

At Sydney, we take your university experience beyond the lab and lecture theatre. You’ll have the opportunity to take part in extracurricular activities, like participating in team competitions, joining one of our many student societies or volunteering with one of our outreach programs.

We also know that employers want well-rounded individuals who embrace all the opportunities and challenges that come their way. That’s why we work with hundreds of organisations to support your career aspirations through scholarships, vacation work and other opportunities that will develop your real life business skills and leadership experience. We’ll also give you the chance to undertake internships, take part in industry-sponsored projects, and go on international exchange.

Whichever way you choose to get involved, you'll be doing it alongside an enthusiastic group of students who are all interested in making a genuine difference within our own community and beyond.

I hope you enjoy your educational journey with us, a faculty that inspires, challenges and supports tomorrow’s leaders.
