Real World Opportunities

A QUT degree provides opportunities to gain practical workplace experience and valuable industry connections. QUT produces world-class research across a range of disciplines and has been awarded six Australian Laureate Fellowships since 2000, the latest to Professor Christopher Barner-Kowollik, Professor Dmitri Golberg and Distinguished Professor Kerrie Mengersen - who is also the first female to be awarded the Pitman Medal for her work with Bayesian statistics.

Alumni of QUT include world-leading NASA astrobiologist and Mars 2020 mission leader Dr Abigail Allwood and Tashi Chhozom, the first woman to be appointed Justice of the Supreme Court in Bhutan. QUT has also produced eight Rhodes Scholars since 1998, five in the past seven years. The QUT Business School was the first business school in Australia to achieve triple international accreditation (AACSB, EQUIS, AMBA) and the School remains in the top 1% worldwide.

As a multi-campus institution, QUT accommodates an internationally and nationally awarded Science and Engineering Centre which incorporates the world’s largest and most advanced digital interactive learning and display space (The Cube). 2016 saw the opening of the new Creative Industries Precinct and the new Education Precinct will be opened in 2018.
