Research Strengths

CQUniversity seeks to become one of Australia's most Engaged Universities with an emphasis on globally relevant activity that benefits the Central Queensland region. The invigoration of research as one of the key pillars in CQUniversity's growth has focused on identifying key areas of research specialisation that will benefit the Central Queensland stakeholders. The Vice-Chancellor's vision is for CQUniversity to become one of the top twenty institutions in Australia, recognised for its applied research that engages with key stakeholders.

Our focus has been to emphasise research with relevance to the region, involving aspects of regional development, growth in resource industries, environmental management, issues associated with quality health care in rural and regional communities, and education delivery specifically through use of modern technology.
