On this page you will find information about engineering at UNE. UNE provides an excellent environment to study engineering. Students studying Natural Resources, Environmental Science and Rural Science study units in engineering. Environmental Engineering is concerned with achieving maximum benefit from our natural resources of soil, water, plants, animals and minerals in a responsible and empathetic way for the long-term benefit of society. Environmental Engineering focuses on practices to gain and maintain the advantages of soil, water, minerals and vegetation in ways that are practically sustainable. We pride ourselves in our use of modern teaching technology and the quality of our research. This site has been designed to provide information about engineering and its teaching and research activities.

What does UNE have to offer?

  • flexible delivery modes
  • low student/staff ratios and offer a more personal experience
  • higher rank for student satisfaction
  • relaxed and friendly environment in a rural setting
  • our staff are highly qualified and respected and a number remain active practitioners in their specialisation
