The building of Curtin University's $40 million agriculture research facility has commenced, with the start of construction marked by a sod turning ceremony.
The Department of Environment and Agriculture seeks to address the important issues facing our planet across the terrestrial and marine landscapes in the areas of biodiversity, climate change and the sustainability of food production. Our courses are supported by research-led teaching and delivered by academics with industry experience and the dedication to creating a better world. Significant government collaborations and strong industry links means we create an impact both at a regional, national and international levels.
The Department's research programs are mainly directed at providing information to allow Australians to continue to develop and flourish while maintaining the quality of their environment. The new Centre for Crop and Disease Management (CCDM) conducts high-impact research that makes a real difference to the Australian grains industry.
