The School offers a comprehensive suite of undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in environmental, marine and forest science and management, providing students with opportunities to develop innovative, contemporary skills and knowledge in their chosen discipline.

The School's four-year degrees in civil engineering and mechanical engineering (new in 2016) enable students to develop the theoretical knowledge and skills vital to the engineering profession. The School's regional and urban planning degree equips students with the legal, environmental, social, design and engineering skills required to work as planners throughout Australia.

Students access new state-of-the-art facilities in the science and engineering precinct at Lismore campus and the University's National Marine Science Centre in Coffs Harbour provides advanced analytical equipment and resources for marine science students and researchers.

Our courses combine academic rigour, laboratory work, field trips within our stunning, ecologically diverse region, and professional experience through industry internships for a well-rounded education and enhanced career opportunities. Many of our units have flexible study options, with all environmental science courses available by distance education.
