Postgraduate research degrees are research-intensive and highly specialised. Rather than attend lectures, students are expected to conduct research on their own and work closely with a supervisor on a one-to-one basis.
The School is divided into three broad research groups. However, within each of these groups there are several specialties.
- The Mining and Geotechnical Engineering Research Group specialises in a variety of disciplines relating to mine planning and operation, soil conditioning and rock mechanics. This includes research in Geostatistics.
- The Structures Research Group specialises in the development and assessment of materials used in the built environment.
- The WaterSYSTEMS Research Group specialises in water system design and assessment, as well as modelling in the fields of hydrology and climate.
If you are interested in sharing our dynamic research environment, further information about enrolling for postgraduate research is available on the University's Postgraduate Research Degrees website.
