The Faculty of IT addresses important challenges in the 21st century by actively pursuing innovative and multi-disciplinary research across a wide range of disciplines.
Consistent with Monash University’s goals, we have identified five key research priorities. Within each of these, we have grouped projects under more specific themes. Some of our most exciting research happens where these priorities intersect.
How can we optimise the use of digital technologies to document, record and share cultural knowledge?
How can technology better support, enable and promote health in the health and medical field?
How can IT best support productivity and innovation?
How can information technology enable the development of strong and healthy communities, promote social inclusion, and bridge the digital and information divide?
How can information technology enable our infrastructure to provide sufficient water, energy, goods and services in a timely and safe fashion in a way that does not use up irreplaceable resources, or damage our environment, and despite possible major disruptions due to natural or human causes
