The health of our oceans is fundamental to a sustainable future.

Southern Cross University's Faculty of Science and Engineering embraces this challenge through research that is advancing knowledge, changing perceptions and informing strategies.

Candidates for the Doctor of Philosophy (Environmental Science and Management) will study through one of three key Research Centres: the Centre for Coastal Biogeochemistry Research, Marine Ecology Research Centre, and Forest Research Centre.

All have access to the University’s National Marine Science Centre at Coffs Harbour.

The Faculty's research success is enhanced by strong links with the public and private sector, including community agencies within Australia and overseas.

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.
