CQUniversity is also a renowned research institution, working with stakeholders in regional Australia, across several research areas. This approach has made CQUniversity a benchmark leader for how universities should engage and collaborate with communities and industry to drive research impact, provide solutions to real-life challenges and identify new opportunities for advancement in our regions and beyond.
