ciber is a large research centre led by the School of Architecture and Built Environment, in the Faculty of Engineering and Built Environment at the University of Newcastle. It seeks to address the issue of industry performance by investigating the policies, processes and practices that architectural, construction and engineering professionals are engaged in. We investigate industry policy, business process, project development, design and construction practice. Our research is applicable to property and construction, civil infrastructure, asset and facilities management, mining, aerospace, shipping, interior and industrial design
Our research investigations are complex and require multi disciplinary solutions – we focus on the nature of the problem and seek out appropriate disciplinary knowledge to develop innovative solutions.
At various levels we are all actively engaged in policy, process or practice issues through a nexus of research, teaching and community engagement and are able to respond to current pressure points and identify future trends. We conduct in research, teaching, consultancy, professional development programs and industrial practice.
During 2003-2005, ciber attracted approximately AUD4,000,000 in research funding from ARC, CRC, EU and government and industry sources.
