RMIT University aims to undertake outcome-related research and development in its areas of demonstrated research excellence, and to support innovation to underpin future economic and social development in the communities in which it operates.

Its approach to this strategy is to build depth and breadth of disciplinary competence in a number of targeted areas. It also seeks to promote a strong practical research culture utilsing project teams to connect disciplinary strengths; research activity linked to teaching and learning for staff and students to focus on applied research to contribute to national and international innovation; to align research activities to address issues identified by industry, community partners and other client groups, and to provide and to support the commercialisation of potential innovations.

Areas of interest within the School of Electrical and Computer Systems Engineering include biomedical engineering related topics in biosignal processing, intelligent automatic analysis and control, neural networks, and task specific biomedical instrumentation. In addition, sensor technology combining traditional scientific disciplines with electronic processing may have potential biotechnology application.
