Smart Technologies

Study smart technologies—from virtual reality and artificial intelligence, to smart homes and cities—and you’ll have the knowledge and skills to redefine the way we live.

Smart technologies is an incredibly innovative and exciting field. Working in this rapidly evolving sphere, you’ll bring together infrastructure, technology and the Internet to:

  • create safer, more efficient services and living environments
  • provide faster, more affordable and lower-risk access to basic needs
  • enrich people’s experiences of their environment.

You can major in Smart Technologies in our:

Taking this path will give you the opportunity to complete courses related to mobile and wireless systems, computer networks, and autonomous systems.

Studying at the home of the Australian Institute for Machine Learning, you’ll gain first-hand experience working with cutting-edge technology companies in South Australia. You will also hone your skills through a final-year honours project, in which you’ll help develop a real-life smart-technologies solution. For example, several 2016-17 Smart Technologies majors contributed to development of the University’s driverless BMW car.
