The former School of Bioresources Engineering and Environmental Hydrology (BEEH), has been split in two with the university-wide restructuring that recently took place.

The Discipline of Bioresources Engineering now falls under the School of Engineering, whereas the Discipline of Environmental Hydrology falls under the School of Agriculture, Earth and Environmental Sciences.

The discipline logo has been altered slightly to account for this change as well.
