Research capabilities

The University of Newcastle continues to build its global reputation for delivering world-class research and innovation.  Our reputation has been built on high quality performance in health and medicine, science and engineering, and energy and the environment.  Our research in humanities and the creative arts is on a rapid and upward trajectory. We are a leader in Indigenous education and research.

The University has attracted some of the very best researchers in the world, and produces highly skilled and knowledgeable Early and Mid-Career Researchers, providing an important platform for the development of critical mass and future growth of these key research fields.

The University of Newcastle acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands within our footprint areas: Awabakal, Darkinjung, Biripai, Worimi, Wonnarua, and Eora Nations. We also pay respect to the wisdom of our Elders past and present.
