About

Dean's welcome

Karen Day, Dean, Faculty of Science

For over 100 years, our Faculty of Science has been recognised internationally for our role in expanding the frontiers of knowledge for the betterment of society. Guided by the University of Melbourne's strategy of Growing Esteem, our community of staff and students continue to contribute strongly in each of the three important elements of a world-class university:

Research – our researchers operate at the highest levels internationally across a breadth of disciplines, contributing to the store of human knowledge, finding applications that benefit society and informing teaching programs which position our students for the international market place.

Learning and Teaching – attracting the best and brightest from around Australia and internationally, Science at Melbourne offers a broad range of disciplines to prepare scientists and professionals for the challenges of tomorrow.

Engagement – by engaging with industry, schools and our community locally and around the world, our staff, students and alumni are able to define, analyse and help solve complex issues in science and business.

We are proud of who we are and our achievements.
