As told by the university

Overview

The UQ engineering and computing learning spaces are some of the most innovative in the world, and its programs focus on the business environment, so students can make better decisions in class and in their career. The University of Queensland has one of the most comprehensive, hands-on engineering degrees in Australia, and its IT and computer science degrees will enable students to develop solutions to society’s most demanding issues.

More study options for greater career opportunities

With a greater selection of majors, UQ prepares students for the jobs of the future. Students now have the opportunity to complement their engineering specialisation with a major in one of the new and emerging areas of engineering. They gain technical expertise, and sharpen their critical thinking and research skills to find answers to pressing questions. There are also 21 dual degree options available within computer science, engineering and information technology.

Engage with industry

Many students undertake professional practice while they complete their studies. UQ maintains a strong engagement program with organisations such as Boeing, Deloitte, Energex, Ernst and Young, Google, Lend Lease, the Queensland Government, and Rio Tinto – who are located at UQ’s St Lucia campus.

Work anywhere

UQ qualifications are internationally recognised, allowing students to work anywhere in the world. Students can find work in research, development, design, manufacturing and operations within engineering firms, IT corporations, government, companies, consultants and non-government organisations. Or they can come up with their own entrepreneurial idea, and use the resources available at UQ’s Idea Hub to start their own business.
