The University of New South Wales, (UNSW) was established in 1949 is located in Kensington, a suburb of Sidney, New South Wales, Australia. Today, the university has over 45,000 undergraduate, post-graduate and professional students. UNSW has a reputation for excellence in science and technology and expanded its scope to include a Faculty of Medicine and a Faculty of Law. The Lowy Cancer Research Center currently in the works will be the first center in Australia to test clinical treatments including drug therapies for cancer patients. UNSW is a member of the prestigious Group of Eight.
Robots put to work on e-waste
UNSW researchers have programmed industrial robots to tackle the vast array of e-waste thrown out by Australians every year.
New method to distinguish between neighboring quantum bits may bring us closer to large-scale quantum computers
Researchers at the University of New South Wales have proposed a new way to distinguish between quantum bits that are placed only a few nanometres apart in a silicon chip, taking them a step closer to the construction of ...
Weeds yet to reach their full potential as invaders after centuries of change
Weeds in the UK are still evolving hundreds of years after their introduction and are unlikely to have yet reached their full potential as invaders, UNSW Australia scientists have discovered.
Cave temperature study could improve climate change predictions

Cultural hitchhiking: How social behavior can affect genetic makeup in dolphins
A UNSW-led team of researchers studying bottlenose dolphins that use sponges as tools has shown that social behaviour can shape the genetic makeup of an animal population in the wild.
Pacific trade winds stall global surface warming—for now
Heat stored in the western Pacific Ocean caused by an unprecedented strengthening of the equatorial trade winds appears to be largely responsible for the hiatus in surface warming observed over the past 13 years.
