The School of ICT is a technological innovator, consistently recognised and enhanced by representation at the Australian Information Industry Association’s prestigious iAwards (AIIA). A joint nomination partnered by the School of ICT’s Industry Project group took out Queensland’s Undergraduate Tertiary category for its Physiotric project; a comprehensive two-sided platform for physiotherapists and clients, which allowed information to be streamlined for faster and more effective patient recovery.
An overall commitment to ICT was showcased by Griffith University when it hosted the Higher Education Technology Agenda (THETA) conference on behalf of the Council of Australian Directors of IT, Council of Australian Librarians and the Australasian Council on Open, Distance and e-Learning. This biennial event attracted a 900-strong international delegation which included representatives from Germany, Hong Kong, Israel, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand, Singapore, Sweden, United Kingdom and the USA who came together to explore important issues facing higher education technology.
Students have the opportunity to be mentored by academic staff who boast leadership roles within the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP) and International Federation of Automatic Control (IFAC). These regulatory bodies create enterprise networks across multiple industries in Europe, Japan, the Americas, and in Australian defence logistics. Superior supervision of Higher Degree by Research (HDR) students has resulted in national recognition through the Computing Research & Education (CORE), and Interactive Computer-Aided Provisioning System (ICAPS) best thesis awards.
