Open Day: Earth and Environmental Sciences
Are you ready to help build a sustainable future for our planet?
Splitting your time between the lab and the field, you’ll learn to use advanced technology to collect data, tackle conservation issues, track species and monitor natural disasters and critical minerals with incredible precision.
Campus tour - North Terrace
Awesome like Mawson
Nestled in the cultural heart of the city, the North Terrace campus is the primary location of undergraduate teaching and the historic core of the University.

Wildlife conservation and drones
Eye in the sky
Meet Molly Hennekam, an ecologist from University of Adelaide's Unmanned Research Aircraft Facility.
Learn how Molly and fellow researchers at the University's 'Drone Hub' use this versatile technology in wildlife monitoring and management.
What's locked up within those rocks?
For earth scientists such as Professor Alan Collins, one of the big challenges is to learn about the planet and to learn about the processes that have evolved to create this habitable world we live in.
How have Earth processes helped concentrate critical elements into different parts of this world? How do we find them? How do we get them out in a sustainable and environmentally sensitive way?
Where can earth sciences take you?
How do we feed the world’s growing population? How do we save our wildlife from extinction? Got an idea that will build a brighter, greener world?
Australian high school students are invited to submit a short video about one of Australia’s big science challenges.
