Overview

Environmental Contamination is the science of prevention, mitigation, and treatment of contaminants and invasive organisms in our unique ecosystems.

More skilled graduates are needed to assess natural threats to our environmental biosecurity, public health, and trade economies. These issues can range from toxicology in water, pests harming our local flora and fauna, diseases affecting our agricultural produce, and many other risks.

This major offers practical learning in identifying chemical and biological contaminants and their source, analysing their impact, and developing strategies to prevent further exposure.
