Welcome to the Natural and Built Environments Research Centre. The Centre, established in 2016, has four major research strands: Natural and Built Environments Education; Environmental Stewardship; Smart and Healthy Communities; and Water and Natural Resources.
Our Centre academics and researchers have diverse research backgrounds and complementary expertise in Civil Engineering, Construction Management, Environmental Science, Geospatial Science, Project Management and Water & Wastewater Engineering. A key aim of the centre is resolving real world, multidisciplinary problems and challenges of industry, governing organizations and the community, at both national and international levels.
We welcome research and partnering opportunities with industries, local councils, governments, communities and other research organisations to address the important knowledge gaps and problems of our natural and built environments.
Undertake a Higher Degree by Research at the School of Natural Built Environments. Masters and PhD programs are offered.
Our research staff available to supervise Higher Degrees by Research, have diverse expertise and a commitment to bringing out the best in their students.
The School’s multidisciplinary nature is central to its success; a mix of diverse disciplines covers the domains of the built and natural environments, and a stimulating research environment, including a vibrant research hub for Water research, with over 100 HDR students.
