Australian Technology Network

The Australian Technology Network (ATN) is a national collaborative group of five major universities.

Each member is based in the capital city of one of Australia's 5 mainland states.

  • University of South Australia in Adelaide, 
  • QUT in Brisbane, 
  • Curtin University in Perth, 
  • RMIT University in Melbourne,
  • University of Technology, Sydney.

We are committed to forging partnerships with industry and government to deliver practical results through focused research.

As a group we educate almost 20% of Australia's graduates and are the university of choice for 22% of Australia's international university students. We educate graduates who are ready to enter their chosen profession, dedicated to the pursuit of knowledge and eager to claim a stake in building sustainable societies of the future.

The ATN’s aim is to help secure Australia’s reputation as the clever country, and contribute to its social and economic wealth, while championing the principles of access and equity that have ensured its members are the universities of first choice for more students.

The continuation of Australia’s economic growth is under threat. In order to sustain the levels of prosperity we have previously experienced, we have to build on our competitive edge in key industries to remain globally competitive. Alongside these developments, Australia’s higher education system is under increased pressure to become more productive and develop courses that address employability.
