About Us

Providing an inclusive environment to transform our world.

Who we are

The Faculty of Science, Agriculture & Engineering (SAgE) has a rich and vibrant history spanning 150 years. It was first established in 1871 as The College of Physical Science. Today, the Faculty spans several schools, institutes, and research centres.

Since our humble beginnings, we've supported the growing needs of science and engineering in the north east.

We're now a global Faculty with a far-reaching impact on societal challenges, including:

  • climate change
  • digital technology
  • smart energy

Welcome from our PVC

My vision, as Pro-Vice-Chancellor (PVC), for the Faculty of Science, Agriculture & Engineering is:

  • to be clear and confident of its distinctive identity
  • to be proud of what it's achieving
  • for everyone to feel excited and valued for their contribution

It’s important to me to recognise innovation and individual excellence in our Schools. And to share the impact of societal activities with the world.

I’m proud to lead a community that inspires and develops the next generation of scientists, engineers, and forward thinkers.

Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Professor Stephanie Glendinning
