Professional experience in environmental science

Take a stance on environmental conservation and support the health and wellbeing of your community through Macquarie University's unique PACE program.

PACE provides opportunities for undergraduate students to gain practical experience working with leading academic researchers and industry partners on mutually beneficial projects.

Through PACE, environmental sciences students recently worked on a project to examine the legacy from over 100 years of atmospheric deposition of lead and other metals as a result of the operations of the Pasminco Cockle Creek Smelter around Boolaroo, near Newcastle in NSW. The findings from this research project were published in numerous newspapers, discussed on TV and on radio and were finally addressed in Australia's High Court.

"PACE presented us with an opportunity to apply our skills and knowledge to an important environmental management issue that can adversely affect both environmental health and human safety." – PACE alumna, Samantha Frant-Vest
