Do you think outside the box? Do you want to make an impact? Does a career in research excite you?

Study a Doctor of Philosophy (Engineering) with Southern Cross University and you’ll be joining a team backed by 30 years of research excellence.

In the Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) 2018 national report, the University received the top rating of “well above world standard” for engineering. Our research success is also enhanced by strong links with the public and private sectors, including community agencies in Australia and overseas.

State-of-the-art research laboratories in the new engineering and science precinct at our Lismore campus provide an opportunity for research and teaching activities across a range of sub-disciplines. These include materials conditioning and testing, concrete and structures testing, fluids/hydraulics testing and mechanics and physics.

Past research has been supported by funding from multiple sources such as the Australian Research Council’s Discovery, Linkage and LIEF schemes, Australian Synchrotron and the Sugar Research Association.

Academic staff in the Faculty of Science and Engineering can provide supervision for various discipline areas. Please search for a supervisor on our Find a Supervisor page.
