Research within the faculty seeks to broaden our impact, partnerships, innovation and ensure that what we do is focussed on issues that reflect our surrounding environment.
The Faculty of Science, Engineering and Built Environment is deeply committed to research partnerships both within the university as well as with colleagues in other universities, industry and in government. Our research aims to strengthen the evidence base of learning, infusing innvation and ideas into our teaching and making a difference to the communities we serve.
