PhD and Research Masters

The Faculty of Engineering and Built Environment is internationally recognised for its outstanding research record, which places our schools among the very best in Australia.

Our research-intensive environment has helped to attract the highest calibre academic and research staff from throughout Australia and around the world. Many of our staff are leaders in their fields, carrying out internationally recognised work in pure and applied research that invariably attracts high levels of competitive research funding and highly talented research students.

The University of Newcastle is one of just five universities in Australia to receive an Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) ranking of 5 for Engineering.

Our interactions with industry also bring real-world technology issues into our research laboratories. Working with industry is central to maintaining a 'forward looking' approach in our education of students. Together with our industry colleagues, we research and develop new technologies and discover innovative solutions to many of the significant problems that face society today.
