CTIE has been formally closed as a centre, but the staff are still active - please see ECSE Research web pages for more up to date information.
The Centre for Telecommunications and Information Engineering has been closed. Historical information only.
The Centre for Telecommunications and Information Engineering (CTIE) is recognised as a centre of excellence in telecommunications research, technical consulting and education.
It is an innovative group of highly proficient telecommunications engineers based at Monash University's Clayton campus.
The group carries out leading edge research, works collaboratively with and consults for key industry sectors, cultural institutions, organisations in health, the environment, and government, and provides professional training courses.
During 2004/2005 the centre was reviewed by the Faculty of Engineering and given whole hearted support. One of the key recommendations that is being taken up by the members of CTIE was to ‘Build on existing close collaboration with industry to develop joint research projects suitable for National Competitive grant submissions such as LIEF, Project and Discovery grants’.
CTIE has been involved in the Australian government cooperative Research Centre effort since 1993. It continues with a strong record in the Australian Research Council (ARC) Grants scheme and through direct industry consultancies.
CTIE was the Applications program leader in the Australian Telecommunications Cooperative Research Centre(old site), but research has ended in that project (Dec. 2005).
CTIE maintains an extensive vendor independent telecommunications network testbed and video communications and encoding facilities for its research efforts. It hs significant Optical Communications and applied photonic facilities. It also has an extensive collection of robotic aircraft used in the Aerobotics activities, as well as many design and simulation facilities for research in network simulations and radio frequency communications
Old CTIE website research pages are still available on this site, but are not being maintained.
Please contact individual CTIE staff directly for any research or consulting enquiries.
