Upcoming SCELSE 7th Summer Course (27 June - 15 July)
27 February 2017


The annual course on Environmental Life Sciences Engineering (ELSE) is a highly interdisciplinary and intensive three-week course that exposes the students to a broad range of topics such as microbial ecology, statistical data analysis, biofilm fundamentals as well as applications in wastewater treatment and biofilm drug discovery. 

The Summer Course is strongly recommended by previous year participants.

"I am overwhelmed by the way the teachers interact with us students. Through interactive sessions and discussions we learn to ask the right questions, as we share lunch and coffee with the experts, it places us on the same level and the conclusion that there is so much to discover in this field is very encouraging. Terrific!" said Mr Vincent Scholz from the University of Duisburg-Essen.

"I particularly found the discussion sessions really interesting and thought that these session helped me consider more the topics we learning about rather than just passively sitting and listening to a lecture... I have also made life long friends from attending the course and felt that there was a real camaradarie between the participants of the course," said Dr Erin Gloag from the University of Technology Sydney.

Students and early career professionals from Asia are highly encouraged to apply. If you are interested in the Summer Course, please click HERE for more information about the application process.
