Western Australia’s mining-based economy means that there are ample opportunities for chemical, materials and earth sciences graduates in particular, to help assist with the running and development of mines. Agriculture is also a big part of WA’s economy, meaning life and environmental scientists may find work in this sector also, either working in consultancy, research, analysis or public service.
The University of Western Australia is a highly-ranked university, with a particularly strong agricultural sciences faculty (ranked 26th globally according to ARWU) and earth sciences faculty (ranked 39th in the world, according to 2014 QS University Rankings by Subject).
