Victoria University focuses on mission-oriented research that is relevant to the needs of society. The University has identified a number of strategic areas where our research strengths match the needs and interests of existing and potential external stakeholders.

Within the Strategic Research Areas, activities are co-ordinated through structures including Key Research Areas (KRAs), Research Centres, units, institutes and groups that contribute to the University and wider community. Most of the research is organised through a multi-tier system, with the University's KRAs at the broadest level. These KRAs are cross-disciplinary and co-exist with the network of Research Centres that represents nodes of research expertise within the University.

The Industrial Automation and Power Systems Research Group focuses on expert systems incorporated with adaptive control and fuzzy logic controllers which are applied to the control and supervision of generation, distribution and protection of power systems. Application of expert systems to control industrial process manufacturing plants are applicable to the petrochemical and chemical steel production industries.
