About the Faculty
The Faculty of Sciences encompasses teaching and research in mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, computing, psychology and nursing grouped into four departments:
and a number of research centres:
The breadth of interests in the Faculty facilitates a stimulating multi-disciplinary environment for both students and staff, an example of which is the current developments in teaching and research in bioinformatics.
Australia is embracing, as is much of the rest of the world, an economy which depends on the intellectual prowess of its workforce, the so called 'knowledge economy'. Science and technology underpins such an economy. It is crucial for the nation's future prosperity that it has a scientifically skilled workforce and a community that is scientifically literate.
Thus it is an exciting and potentially rewarding time to be studying the sciences. The Faculty of Sciences can offer you an outstanding learning experience in a caring yet stimulating intellectual environment at both the undergraduate and postgraduate level.
The Faculty has the largest number of on-campus students of any Faculty at USQ, and also has many enrolments in its distance education programs. Over the years our graduates have established fine reputations with employers.
