Enabling greater collaboration between the disciplines of science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine
The STEMM Precinct
Across our Callaghan campus, several projects are underway, or recently completed, to upgrade our STEMM facilities – in buildings such as EF, ES, V, C and NIER A. New buildings are also being planned. We are officially referring to this collection of facilities as the STEMM Precinct, as together they will facilitate new ways of working.
STEMM Precinct Projects include:
- ES and EF Buildings
- Newcastle Institute for Energy and Resources (NIER) Building A
- C Building
- New Biological Sciences Glasshouses
- V Building
- Callaghan Pathways Precinct
- New Bioresources Facility
