Our courses

Engineering

"Since starting my career as a professional civil engineer, I’ve learned just how realistic QUT's courses are. The most beneficial thing is the staff. They are approachable and helpful, as well as being diverse in their fields."

Jack Gaffney

Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Civil)

Property Economics

"As a recipient of the QIC Global Real Estate Scholarship I worked in QIC’s real estate business while studying and I found that the course material was directly linked to the work I was doing. QUT is renowned for bringing industry experience to the lecture theatre and for me this was a key reason for enrolling."

Daniel O'Driscoll

Bachelor of Property Economics

Urban Development

"QUT provided a vast knowledge base and array of skills to help prepare me for my job as a professional quantity surveyor. During my degree QUT helped me obtain a cadetship with leading firm, Turner & Townsend. Now I am employed by Turner & Townsend where I have worked on projects across a number of sectors."

James McMahon

Bachelor of Urban Development (Honours)
