Science at UWS embodies the ethos of extending the boundaries of scientific knowledge and exploring synergies that exist at traditional discipline boundaries through research. It is a truism that many of the most exciting and contemporary scientific problems reside at such boundaries, and our staff lead externally funded research programs in diverse inter-disciplinary fields that address Australia's National Research Priorities. We seek to make a difference to the quality of life in the complex and vibrant environment of Greater Western Sydney and beyond.
Opportunities for student planning and development of projects based upon a strong understanding of fundamental concepts and processes will be provided. Throughout your course, multidisciplinary knowledge and practical skills will be integrated to provide a hands-on problem solving approach. Wherever possible, real situations and industrial simulations will be used.
Our degree programs embrace a range of innovative approaches to teaching, often in partnership with external organisations, and are designed to equip our graduates with a passion for life-long learning. Most of our courses contain linkages between teaching, industry and the community, allowing you to place your study and learning in real-world contexts.
