International Research Profile

Our research has placed us in the Top 1% of universities worldwide for research quality.

The results of the Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) in 2012 rated 90% of UOW’s Fields of Research at, above, or well above world standard; and recognised in particular the contribution of the Intelligent Polymer Research Institute, the Institute for Superconducting and Electronic Materials and Materials and Manufacturing Engineering.

Our international reputation is enhanced through the world leading SMART Infrastructure Facility and the Illawarra Health and Medical Research Institute (IHMRI), and the innovative Australian Institute of Innovative Materials (AIIM).

Australian Research Council (ARC) grants relative to size rate UOW 2nd in Australia, and 10th in Australia for the number of fields of research above or well above world standard.
