Partnership sets year 8 girls on STEM path
Girls from two Hunter-based high schools seeking a higher education and career in STEM-related disciplines are closer to achieving their…
The School of Engineering is dedicated to research and training in the disciplines of Chemical, Civil, Environmental, Mechanical and Mechatronics Engineering, and Surveying. From 2019, we will also be offering new undergraduate degree programs in Aerospace Systems and Renewable Energy Engineering.
Our programs are underpinned by some of the most exciting research in Australia. In the Australian Research Council research excellence ratings we are the only university to achieve the highest possible rating of '5' in Civil Engineering across all four ERA assessments (2010, 2012, 2015 and 2018), and one of only two to achieve a 5 in Resources Engineering and Extractive Metallurgy across three consecutive ERA assessments.
We are ranked in 40th in the world for Mineral & Mining Engineering according by the 2019 QS World University Rankings by Subject for the second consecutive year. We are also:
The University of Newcastle Engineering programs produce graduates that meet the following Program Educational Outcomes (PEOs). The PEOs are statements that summate the minimum expectations of graduates some 3-5 years post-graduation.

The University of Newcastle’s Faculty of Engineering and Built Environment is home to two of the most highly ranked¹´², research-intensive engineering schools. Together, these schools provide research-led, forward-thinking engineering programs in 11 engineering specialisations. Our programs are designed to ingrain deep technical discipline knowledge within a robust, professional perspective framework. Our graduates hone their technical skills by working on real-world problems both individually and in teams to achieve ethical, socially responsible and technically meritorious solutions to complex, open-ended problems.

Our engineering graduates are highly sought after with many students landing a job before they even finish their degree. In their final year our students bring theory and practice together in sophisticated research projects.
Offered since 2014, the Catherine and Peter Tay High Achiever Engineering Scholarship gives one new student $32,000 over the four years of their degree. There are numerous other scholarships available to Engineering students.
Our Formula SAE team put their theory into practice by designing and building a formula style race car. The students take part in an annual competition and get to race their car against teams from across Australia.
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.
