About the ITR
The research centre originated from the Digital Communications Group (DCG) that commenced in the early 1980s within the School of Electronic Engineering, where its research foci were mainly in the areas of modulation and coding, satellite communications and mobile communications.
Fundamental and applied research, proof of concept development and commercialisation activities all play an important part in ITR's success.
Strong national and international relationships and collaborations with the telecommunications business community ensure our work has a high degree of relevance to the problems facing the wireless communications industry.
The ITR works towards the vision to advance human knowledge in the transmission, processing and use of information, enabling high impact technologies that deliver economic, social, cultural, environmental and health benefits.
It is our mission to conduct world class fundamental research, partnered with industry, to deliver leading edge technologies in a vibrant research education environment.
Postgraduate students work with supervisors who have strong connections to industry and research topics have relevance to problems facing the wireless communications industry.
With some 35 staff and 30 postgraduate students, the ITR is the largest university-based research organisation in the area of wireless communications in Australia.
