Research proposal

Research in the Faculty of Science and Engineering is supported by its three key research centres:

Centre for Coastal Biogeochemistry Research: This is the only research group in Australia specifically dedicated to understanding how physical, geological, chemical and biological processes (biogeochemistry) impact on coastal ecosystems.

Marine Ecology Research Centre: Builds on the internationally recognised marine research reputation of the Faculty of Science and Engineering by incorporating Whale Research and Coral Reef Research.

Forest Research Centre: Researchers investigate the ecology of native forests both in Australia and overseas, as well as studying how native forests and plantations can sustainably produce wood products, environmental services and carbon.
