Our vision

STEMM disciplines are critical to Australia’s future. As business and government leaders readily recognise, STEMM skills are increasingly vital to helping business innovate, to create jobs and growth, and importantly, to improve our quality of life.

To keep pace, we have major projects underway to increase strategic collaboration between the STEMM disciplines.

Our vision is to embed new ways of learning, teaching and research that span the STEMM disciplines, supported by cutting-edge infrastructure to enable the collision of ideas. This will allow us to continue to produce research with real-world impact, create future-facing graduates, and forge closer connections with industry.


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.
