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.
Computer writes its own fables
Researchers have created a computer program with the artificial intelligence to write its own fables.
Single-atom writer a landmark for quantum computing
A research team led by Australian engineers has created the first working quantum bit based on a single atom in silicon, opening the way to ultra-powerful quantum computers of the future.
Rising gas prices make renewables a sure bet
New analysis by UNSW suggests that renewable investment is likely to be cheaper and lower risk for Australia, since rising and uncertain gas prices make baseload gas-fired electricity high risk and high cost.
Secrets of the legless, leaping land fish (w/ Video)
One of the world's strangest animals – a legless, leaping fish that lives on land - uses camouflage to avoid attacks by predators such as birds, lizards and crabs, new research shows.
Single-atom transistor is 'perfect'
In a remarkable feat of micro-engineering, UNSW physicists have created a working transistor consisting of a single atom placed precisely in a silicon crystal.
Fukushima radioactive plume to reach US in three years

Wearable technology may bring health data to doctors
Wearable consumer devices used to monitor health and fitness could become important sources of information for medical practitioners and insurance providers if a new project led by UNSW researchers is successful.
Cause of El Nino abnormality found
(Phys.org) —Unusual El Niños, like those that led to the extraordinary super El Niño years of 1982 and 1997, will occur twice as often under even modest global warming scenarios.
Warming will disturb balance of soil nutrients in drylands
An increase in aridity due to global warming will disturb the balance of nutrients in the soil and reduce productivity of the world's drylands, which support millions of people, a landmark study predicts.
Narrowest conducting wires in silicon ever made show the same current capability as copper
The narrowest conducting wires in silicon ever made just four atoms wide and one atom tall have been shown to have the same electrical current carrying capability of copper, according to a new study published ...
