The Faculty of
Engineering, Architecture and Information Technology

We aim to be universally recognised as a global top 20 university for engineering, design and technology as we change the world through creative thinking, innovative technologies and outstanding staff, students and alumni.

Our Faculty has long, proud traditions of innovation and leadership across student education and research.

In just over a century, more than 27,000 Faculty graduates have gone on to use their UQ education to have significant impact on our state, our nation and across the world. We believe that lifelong success is fostered at UQ through great education – inspiring students to think differently, ask the difficult questions, be a positive disruptive influence, and fulfil every ounce of their potential.

Our research provides a rich and diverse flow of breakthrough technologies that are helping to improve communities around the world. From novel hydrogen storage and next generation polymers to biomedical engineering and mining safety, our research outcomes are solving problems for local and international communities, and our industry partners.

Creative problem solving – through great science, engineering and design – means faculties like ours have an increasingly vital role to play in the world’s future.
