Unique teaching facilities and state of the art equipment
Students work in new laboratories, the UNE Herbarium, the Natural History Museum and also operate cutting edge analytical equipment.
This new laboratory is dedicated to soil carbon work and is used mainly for project work. It integrates to our adjacent problem based learning room so that laboratory sessions can be video linked to tutorials.
Student get to study all the resources held in our new Natural History Museum which houses a vibrant collection of Australian species.
Students get easy access to advanced scanning and analytical equipment whilst learning the critical skills that employers seek.
Our ecology and plant work is undertaken in our state of the art multi-million dollar glasshouse complex, which includes reconfigurable temperature and light duration experimental bays.
The N.C.W. Beadle Herbarium (NE) at UNE consists of c.100 000 vascular plant specimens, housed in a purpose built facility where students can use excellent stereomicroscopes and specimen imaging equipment.
