University of Western Sydney
University of Western Sydney, Hawkesbury
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.
