Establish a rewarding career developing innovative technology, and tackling some of the biggest challenges in scientific research.

Driven by the Spirit of Innovation

Here we nurture the next generation of science and technology innovators. AAO-Macquarie is a department within the Faculty of Science and Engineering of Macquarie University. The pairing of engineering and science in a single faculty means many of Macquarie’s research discoveries in science see direct technological applications in engineering. We are active within many industry partnerships, commercial collaborations, and joint enterprise initiatives with government, industry and business partners.

AAO-MQ works in a matrix structure with close collaboration across all of its functional groups. There is a strong emphasis on communities of practise and a shared culture of learning and innovation.

AAO-MQ is committed to creating a working environment and culture that is inclusive and provides equal opportunities, irrespective of race, gender, age, sexual orientation, culture and origin. We have a long-standing commitment to advancing equity and diversity principles. We hold silver status in the Pleiades awards, Australia’s scheme for certifying commitment and progress in equity, diversity and inclusion in astronomy and physics, and are committed to continual improvement in these principles.
