Engineering and Computing

Engineering and Computing

You wouldn't be here without technology.

We mean that literally. Everything from the screen you're reading to the electrical grid powering it was shaped by an engineering or computing professional. Engineering and computing careers are some of the most important of our time and a UQ program will help you shape the future.

Choose your direction: undergraduate programs allow you to specialise in areas such as mechanical and aerospace engineering, civil engineering, information technology, cyber security and data science. Or choose a postgraduate coursework or HDR program, which offer valuable career development through specialised study or research.

Work anywhere

You'll find our graduates in locations from offshore oil and gas rigs to high-rise commercial buildings, where they lead major projects and initiatives.

UQ is a first-class university with award-winning lecturers, and I feel that my experiences there equipped me with the skills necessary to excel in my career and broader industry. The opportunity to complete projects with real-world clients and gain practical experience while studying was also an attractive factor for me when choosing UQ.
