Re-engineering engineering

This program seeks to address the rapidly growing demand for alternative inter-disciplinary technologies, such as bio-inspired agile sensory systems, smart edge devices, and brain-inspired high performance computational platforms. The students will be introduced to state-of-the-art neuromorphic hardware, sensors and algorithms in a highly structured way that increases their acumen for approaching new situations with creativity and initiative.

A student completing the two-year degree may apply to pursue a PhD. Two exit options (Graduate Certificate in Neuromorphic Engineering and Graduate Diploma in Neuromorphic Engineering) are also available. The majority of the programs subjects will be undertaken at Parramatta City - Hassall St campus, while the applied project and research project will be located at Penrith campus.

World-class facilities

Study at Western's high tech Parramatta City campus.

Professional accreditation

Professional accreditation will be sought from Engineers Australia for the Master of Neuromorphic Engineering program. Students will be subsequently eligible to apply for Chartered Professional Engineering registration upon successful completion of the required engineering practice period specified by Engineers Australia.

Master of Neuromorphic Engineering

Advance your knowledge with the Master of Neuromorphic Engineering at Western Sydney University. Being one of the first of its kind in the world, the program further equips students with the knowledge of neuromorphic perception and processing. Learn how neuromorphic systems and circuits have natural advantages over conventional solutions, namely noise tolerance, low power consumption, low latency output and high dynamic range sensing.

Students who have completed an Undergraduate Degree in Electrical Engineering, Electronics, Biomedical Engineering, Computer Science, or a related degree are encouraged to apply. All students who enrol in the 8124 Master of Applied Neuromorphic Engineering will have the option to transition to 8123 Master of Neuromorphic Engineering at the end of their first year.
