Faculty of
Engineering, Architecture and Information Technology

Established in 2011, the annual Engineering Class Gift initiative is an important avenue for graduating students to recognise the opportunities that they have benefited from at UQ and to 'pay these forward' to the next generation of UQ students.

You may have heard of the previous Engineering Class Gifts, which together have raised almost $35,000 from more than 500 donations from students staff and alumni to improve the UQ engineering student experience.

If you would like more information on the Class Gift, please contact the Faculty Advancement Team, at alumni@eait.uq.edu.au.
