Our Faculty's commitment to teaching and research is reflected in the outstanding achievements of our staff and students. Most of our academic staff are active in research, so our students are taught by experts and informed by the latest developments.

Both of our Newcastle (Callaghan) and Central Coast (Ourimbah) campuses are fully equipped with purpose-built facilities to provide students with a practical environment to develop their skills.

Work experience is also built into most of our courses, giving students the opportunity to apply these skills in the workplace and establish lasting connections to industry.

Due to the Faculty's strengths, our graduates are able to confidently enter the workforce and have gone on to work for highly regarded organisations such as CSIRO and the World Health Organisation.

Welcome to the Faculty of Science, we look forward to working with you to reach your goals.

The future: The STEMM Precinct

A major project is underway to increase strategic collaboration between the STEMM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine) 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.
