Why study STEM at QUT?

Discovering how to improve lives by solving a range of real-world problems will be crucial in the future. Many of the jobs of today were unheard of a decade ago: app developers, big data analysts and sustainability engineers.

STEM careers provide the greatest opportunities to succeed in the future.

No university is better placed to help you launch your STEM career than Queensland’s only university of technology.

Your STEM career starts here

Think about the future. What issues do we need to address, as a society, to ensure longevity? Climate change. Water scarcity. Food shortages. Species extinction. Affordable housing.  With a predicted 75 per cent of future occupations needing STEM literacy, it means that a skilled STEM workforce is central to addressing these complex issues now and into the future.


Understand and tackle the greatest challenges facing our world and its future.
