About Us

Telecommunications has a long and vibrant history at the University of Adelaide, stretching all the way back to the early 1970's.

Since the formation of the Teletraffic Research Centre in 1986, the University has been committed to being a leader in applied research problems involving modelling, measurement and management of telecommunications systems and networks. Our commitment to Australia's Defence and Security needs is highlighted by the 2006 formation of the Centre for Defence Communications and Information Networking.

We operate as an advanced engineering organisation, focused on current and future networks, bringing state of the art research skills to bear on problems in

  • Robustness
  • Reliability
  • Efficiency
  • Effectiveness
  • Security

Our success is reflected by the implementation of our research and development in real world applications and in winning competitive research grant funding.

A major factor in this success is our ability to develop and apply mathematical techniques to industrial problems, especially in the areas of operations research and  statistical analysis.

Our capability is built on the skills of our key staff and associates, who combined have over 200 person years of industrial, government and academic experience in system and network modelling and analysis. This expertise, developed in leading industry and university laboratories in the USA, Europe and Australia, is uniquely placed to provide the cutting edge analysis needed for understanding the behaviour of networked systems, predicting their future performance, measuring outcomes and feeding that knowledge into future improvements.

We also run short courses on specialist topics, specifically designed to strengthen the skills of employees in high-tech industries.

We are committed to the pursuit of academic excellence, with particular emphasis on Applied MathematicsElectrical and Electronic Engineering and Computer Science. This pursuit takes the form of conducting undergraduate teaching, supervision of postgraduate students and collaborative research.

We are located on Level 5 of the Ingkarni Wardli Building (North Terrace Campus).
