The School of Engineering formed in 2017 bringing together long-established engineering research and teaching groups in:

  • chemical
  • civil
  • electrical & electronic
  • marine
  • mechanical

Our research spans engineering disciplines, from fundamental principles to multi-disciplinary projects. We tackle global challenges such as climate change, sustainable energy, transport, water supply, and waste management. Our research is enabled by world-class laboratories and facilities.

Students in the School are partners in our learning and teaching model. From research-led teaching to experiential learning, the student experience is varied, challenging and rewarding. In addition to our undergraduate and postgraduate courses in Newcastle, engineering is the mainstay of the University's campus in Singapore.

We offer a wide range of Continuing Professional Development courses, some of which are accredited by professional organisations. Our courses attract people from many organisations and at different stages in their careers. We have the expertise and flexibility to develop new, tailored courses, responding to the needs of our clients.

Our city and region has a long and proud heritage in engineering - our great innovators such as Armstrong, Stephenson, Merz and Swan developed ideas that changed the world.

We're proud to continue the region's rich history in world-leading engineering, innovation and creativity.
