South along Highway 1, 132 kilometres from Rockhampton, is the deepwater port and industrial centre of Gladstone. CQUniversity Gladstone, located beside the Gladstone yacht harbour, is home to the University's Engineering and Environmental Management Complex devoted to research and training, and which provides a venue for conferences and residential schools.
At CQUniversity, with the smaller class sizes, we get to get to know each other a bit more and make good friends. We do things together, we study together, it gives us a good opportunity to collaborate as a team.
PELM is an engineering centre and it’s focused on providing research and technical services for the industries in central Queensland. PELM works with many of the mechanical engineers in particular on places such as the power station and the alumina refineries. Incidentally, many of the junior engineers are CQUniversity graduates and have worked through PELM as undergraduate students in doing their final year projects.
Note: PELM has been renamed the Gladstone Engineering Centre since this video was created.
