As a student of the college, you’ll graduate with the ability to tackle the biggest challenges of the twenty-first century: fighting global warming, curing diseases and viruses, discovering green resources and energies and uncovering the mysteries of space.
At the College of Science and Engineering we believe in the power of science and engineering to solve real world problems. We strive to advance fundamental science, to create new technologies, and to work across discipline boundaries. Our interests scale from the sub-atomic through to entire oceans, forests and beyond. We seek to understand the past, but also to create the world of the future.
Our researchers seek to discover new understandings in fields as diverse as groundwater hydrology, forensic science and medical devices, while our teaching offers qualifications in areas of biological sciences, chemical and physical sciences, computer science, information technology, engineering, mathematics and the environment.
Our college is an exciting place to research, study and work, supported by best practice teaching methods, practical work-related learning and advanced facilities. We are the power behind creative science and engineering.

Joining a Flinders University Student Association (FUSA) club is a great way to involve yourself in the University community and meet like-minded individuals who share the same hobby or passion. Not only does it provide a great break from study, joining a club expands your opportunities outside of the classroom and allows you to network with others in the same field of study. Below is a snapshot of the clubs that relate to the College of Science and Engineering.
For a full list of clubs and associations, visit the FUSA website.
The SILC has been designed to support first year students by providing flexible spaces and open plan areas. These create an environment where students can engage in learning, and share their experiences with others. It provides a focal point for first-year students to study and interact.

Undertaking an honours degree in the College of Science and Engineering provides many opportunities to experience the intellectual fertility that arises from a broad base of disciplines all working together, that are normally separated into departments in many universities.
How to apply
If you have completed (or are about to complete) a 3 year bachelor degree, and are applying to add on a 1 year honours course, there are two steps in the application process:
Step 1: Apply online for the course via the student system. When applying, you need to search for the relevant course code (HBSC or HBIT or HBDTI or HBAGIS or HBEM) and select the correct 1 year course that you wish to apply for.
Step 2: Submit an Expression of Interest for at least two projects via the College of Science and Engineering Honours and Masters project website. Before submitting your Expression of Interest for projects, you must speak with potential supervisors to discuss the projects on offer.
If you are currently admitted into a 4 year honours course at Flinders University, you can skip Step 1 and go straight to Step 2, as students already in a 4 year honours course DO NOT need to submit an application via the student system for a new course.
