UTS Science teaches practical, relevant and innovative science supported by world-class facilities. It conducts real research that innovates and solves issues facing our world. UTS Science is a top-notch research intensive faculty, and contributes about 40 per cent of UTS’s total research outputs.
In 2015 we opened a new building adjacent to our current building as part of the UTS City Campus Master Plan, a $1 billion transformation. This new science-focused facility is built to accommodate growing demands of our courses and research activities.
Join a top-ranked university
UTS was awarded FIVE STARS for excellence in higher education by QS™, including five stars for employability, engagement, facilities, innovation and internationalisation. We are ranked in the top 400 universities by the Times Higher Education World University Rankings (opens an external site), and the top 500 in the Shanghai Jiao Tong University Academic Ranking 2011 and 2012, and 284 in the QS World University Rankings.
Science is on the move and ever changing, and to make sure you’re learning current issues, research is vital.
We pride ourselves on focusing real-world, practice-oriented learning that combines specialist practical skills and knowledge with other important attributes desired by employers such as communication skills, teamwork, critical thinking and analytical skills.
According to the Australian Graduate Survey*, 77 per cent of UTS Science’s bachelors’ graduates and 82 per cent of its postgraduate coursework graduates were employed in the first three months after completing their studies.

Inclusive practice-oriented learning
Laboratory practical and clinical work will start from day one of your study. You’ll study and socialise in an environment that is inclusive, nurturing and solution driven to harvest the best of you.
Internationally recognised qualifications with global opportunities
UTS Science’s courses can be combined with other disciplines such as business, international studies, law or engineering which allows graduates to gain employment in both disciplines.
The majority of UTS Science degrees are accredited, professionally recognised and/or open to membership. Our biomedical science program is the only program accredited by the Australian Institute of Medical Scientists (AIMS) in Sydney which allows graduates to practice in the USA and UK.
Unlike engineering degrees, science and mathematics degrees don’t require professional recognition to practice which means professional recognition is not essential. There are also numerous association and society within the science disciplines, such as the Australian Marine Science Society, Royal Australian Chemical Institute, etc.
Access world-class facilities
Our facilities are comparable if not better to those used in advanced commercial laboratories. In fact, we provide solution-based services to industries in niche platform technologies.
In 2015 we opened another new building featuring teaching and specialised research laboratories, lecture theatres and social spaces to add-on to its current world-class facilities.
Research-active and industry-experienced staff
Learn from research active and industry-experienced academics, including distinguished professors who are leaders in their disciplines with industry collaborations such as FEI Company (USA), Agilent Technologies (USA), Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO), and Australia’s national science agency, CSIRO.
Real research that is innovative and solution driven
Connect with real research that is innovative and solve issues facing our world, such as climate change, natural resource management, crime prevention, infectious diseases, mathematical and statistical modelling and many more.
