CQUniversity has a commitment to excellence in research and innovation with a particular emphasis on issues that affect the region. CQUniversity achieves relevance in its research goals through linkages with industry, business, government and the community and through collaboration with national and international researchers and research networks.
Research degrees require you to undertake supervised research on a specific topic of interest. The choice of topic is varied. You can choose any area, provided the University confirms the topic is valid and we are able to provide suitable supervision and resources.
Your research will lead to the submission of a thesis which will be critically reviewed by an expert panel. This thesis must make a significant and original contribution to new knowledge. To assist in this, CQUniversity provides a range of exciting and relevant research opportunities for Masters and PhD candidates and is committed to excellence and quality in the research training experience of its candidates.
