School of Science, Education and Engineering
Welcome to the School of Science, Education and Engineering in the Faculty of Science, Health, Education and Engineering.
The School represents a recognition by the Faculty and University of the importance of these three areas in general, as well as science education in particular.
The School is divided into four key discipline areas, these include:
- Education (Discipline Leader - Associate Professor Deborah Heck)
- Engineering (Discipline Leader - Professor Mark Porter)
- Science and Environmental Science (Discipline Leader - Al Grenfell)
- TPP and TEP (Discipline Leader - Dr David McKay)
The School offers a wide variety of programs that emphasise producing graduates with greater career options by equipping them with a degree that is more attuned to the job market.
While continuing to develop, globally and regionally, the School capitalises on its unique proximity to a large number of primary and secondary schools as well as strong ties to government authorities such as local councils and the Department of Primary Industries and Fisheries.
The School is diverse with a wide range of programs available at both undergraduate and postgraduate entry levels. The School also offers rural and remote education placement opportunities as part of its education programs.
Following the recent growth of the School, we are progressing towards the inclusion of several new programs to offer to future students. Further additional programs and revisions to current programs can be anticipated and updates will be posted on this website regularly.
Research, international development and engagement
Research, international development and engagement efforts are strong in the School, attracting high levels of funding and recognition both locally and internationally. These include one group conducting international development projects and staff working on educating and researching about climate change:
The School is also offering a Type 2 Continuing Professional Development Seminar series to professional engineers in Infrastructure, Water and Environmental Engineering on campus over three days 20-22 April, 2012.
The unique composition of the School—its quality of staff and its fit with the University’s commitment to education, regional engagement, research and development—places the School in a reputable position.
