Environmental engineering. Be part of the solution.
At the University of Newcastle we train environmental engineers capable of solving the biggest global challenges. As an environmental engineering graduate, you may help rehabilitate land damaged by mining or work on the clean-up of an oil spill that threatens local ecosystems. You could even help prevent inundations on one of the world's fast growing cities or contribute to solving drought impacts on cities and ecosystems.
What is environmental engineering? Environmental engineering apply their knowledge of chemistry, geomechanics, hydrology and land surface processes to find solutions for complex environmental problems, such as water pollution and soil erosion. By studying a range of courses in environmental engineering and related fields, they learn to develop sustainable engineering practices that have a profound impact on our health and quality of life. They learn to work with other specialists to optimise the use of resources and minimise long-term impacts on the environment.
