2018 was a productive and successful year for the School and our Centre with the pursuit of research excellence and social impact. Our collective grant income for 2018 was $2.4 Million, we congratulated 6 students who were awarded their PhD, and had 46 refereed journal and 20 Conference referred papers published. Our 18 research and academic staff supervised and supported 24 PhD, 2 Taste of Research, 1 Practicum, 7 Masters by Coursework and 31 Honours students.
We believe that rCITI contributed considerably to the UNSW Civil Engineering award of the 2018 Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) assessment, and to the School’s ranking as first in Australia and 9th in the world in the Academic Ranking of World Universities (AWRU) rankings.
rCITI welcomed 8 new staff and said farewell to 4 staff. We hosted 5 international speakers/researchers, 2 workshops and our staff/students presented at 10 local and international conferences.
In 2018 rCITI continued with its relevant interdisciplinary research as well as its liaison with government and industry, this helped the centre meet rCITI’s mission of becoming a world-leading organization in integrated interdisciplinary transport research and development. And our over-arching aim to be a major contributor and facilitator to shaping the global research field of integrated transport systems and ultimately attaining safe, efficient and sustainable transport for society.
We thank all the staff, students and other collaborators, such as Advisian for their dedication to the centre and excellent research.
