Electronic Materials Engineering

The Electronic Materials Engineering (EME) Department conducts interdisciplinary research in areas such as condensed matter physics, materials science and device engineering. This includes world-class research in the growth, structure, properties and applications of electronic materials. The diversity of the Department's research is one of its key strengths, underpinning its broad collaborative base and its ability to attract students and researchers from a range of disciplines.

The Department specifically aims to:

  • undertake world-class research into the growth, structure, properties and applications of semiconductors and related materials
  • train first-class postgraduate students for future employment in industry, academia and government
  • play a leading role in the development of electronic materials research within the School, University and broader Australian research community
  • integrate its research, wherever possible, with the needs and demands of Australian industry.
