The Faculty of Applied Science comprises a unique constellation of disciplines. Our core purpose is to discover, design, innovate, provide unwavering top-tier education and champion a community of responsible professionals.

Our strategic plan captures our vision and sets out our aspirations for the future. It articulates the diverse voices of the Applied Science community, and reflects what matters most to us. The priorities and strategies in the plan form a framework for decision-making and investment across the Faculty.
