Centre of Excellence in Telecommunications

The Centre of Excellence in Telecommunications (CoET) is an organised research unit created to foster a world class research and education and provide solutions for future telecommunication networks. Its mission is to establish interdisciplinary environment for fundamental research and promote technology innovation in broadband telecommunications, wireless engineering and networking. 

At present the Centre has research projects in 5G cellular communication systems and networks, mmWave wireless communications, machine-to-machine (M2M) radio networks, with applications in smart grids, energy harvesting, wireless energy transfer, heterogeneous networks, coding and modulation, network virtualisation and security.  The research program is currently supported by industry, Sydney University, Australian Research Council (ARC) Discovery and Linkage grants, with a total funding over $3 million.

The Centre currently consists of two research groups, Wireless Engineering and Wireless Networking Group. It also provides significant support to the curriculum development, teaching and capstone projects of the following teaching programs at the School of Electrical and Information Engineering:

  • The Telecommunications Major is a 4-year undergraduate degree program leading to the BE in Electrical Engineering (Telecommunications).

  • The Internet of Things Major is a 4-year undergraduate degree program leading to the BE in Electrical Engineering (Internet of Things).

  • Master of Engineering (ME) in Telecommunications is a coursework graduate program leading to the ME degree in Engineering (Telecommunications)

  • Master of Professional Engineering (MPE) in Telecommunications is a coursework graduate program leading to the MPE degree in Engineering (Telecommunications)
