College of Science, Health, Engineering and Education
Protecting what matters in the real world.
The power of collaboration and research
The College of Science, Health, Engineering and Education (SHEE) brings together world-renowned researchers and future innovators to unlock solutions to challenges impacting our food, health and sustainability.
Our unique combination of disciplines and collaborative working practices translates theory into action.
As a research intensive university, our three interdisciplinary institutes align with our major research strengths. The interface between human health, animal health and the environment is at the heart of our research mandala and the potential to deliver significant outcomes for a better world is brought to life by the Harry Butler Institute, Health Futures Institute and Food Futures Institute.
Through combining our knowledge and expertise in both established and emerging fields, our teams are able to make a positive impact faster.
The College groups together fields with similar aims and interests to foster collaboration and cross-discipline activity. We offer undergraduate, postgraduate and research degrees across a range of disciplines:
