USQ will focus its research efforts into its core area of agriculture and the environment and emerging areas of regional systems, digital futures, computational mathematics and bio medical sciences.

USQ has significant and core research strengths in the broad area of agriculture and the environment. This includes research in areas such as agribusiness, astrophysics, crop biotechnology, the effect of climate on food and water security, precision agriculture, farming mechanisation, irrigation systems, hydrology, soil sciences, forestry, natural resource management, UV radiation, farm energy use and emissions, fibre composite materials, and green energy.

USQ also has several emerging areas of research strength including research in digital futures, mathematical sciences, biomedical sciences, and research performed in the broad area of regional systems. This encompasses research into regional sustainability or delivery of health services, business, education, law, social factors, anthropology, indigenous pasts and arts that have a specific regional Australian basis or aspect.
