Professor Colin Greensill

Welcome to the School of Engineering and Technology. We are a vibrant and rapidly growing school with over 90 staff and nearly 1000 students. Our locations across Central Queensland provide us with unrivalled access to the engine room of Australia's mineral industry – which in turns provides a multitude of opportunities to students studying engineering, built environment or information technology programs.

Our expertise lies in the provision of high quality face to face and distance education, allowing us to provide you with learning opportunities regardless of where you are in Australia or the World and the opportunity to tailor your studies to suit your lifestyle and career goals. 

CQUniversity's engineering programs have a strong focus on industry relevance to ensure our graduates are work-ready. Our engineering programs have been developed in consultation with key stakeholders in the sector. Our engineering specialisations include Civil, Electrical, Mechanical, Mechatronics and Mining. Our engineering students are changing the world we live in.

While our engineering students are changing the world, our Built Environment graduates' designs change the world in which we live. Our Built Environment programs specialise in, Building Design, Building Surveying and Construction Management. They are available completely online and are designed primarily for those already working within the industry, allowing you to up-skill and gain a quality qualification to meet your career advancement goals.

If our engineers are changing the world, then our technology students are changing the way we change the way we communicate and the devices we use to communicate. Our range of information technology programs include everything from systems, programming, application development, security and analysis, while our range of Multimedia programs will equip you to take on the exciting world of web design, video production and digital entertainment. A range of our technology programs are also available across the metropolitan campuses.

In addition to our outstanding suite of undergraduate programs, the School of Engineering and Technology also offers a full suite of postgraduate coursework programs including maintenance management, project management, railway signalling, rail operations and accident investigation general management, information systems and information technology.

We also undertake industry focused research and consultancy work in a number of areas with significance for regional Queensland and the wider Australian community, including rail, power and energy and materials. We're also Australia's leading destination for Engineering Education Research.

Whatever your goal within the Engineering, Built Environment, Information Technology and Research fields, we look forward to welcoming you to the School in the very near future.
