Engineering and Built Environment

From high-rise buildings to revolutionary modern aircraft and motor vehicles, engineers are the driving force behind many of modern society’s greatest creations. Whether you want to become a leader in construction, design geographic information systems like Google Maps, or even utilise new technologies such as satellite imagery for 3D mapping in urban and regional planning, we have a degree to get you there.  

  • USQ's Engineering degrees are fully-accredited through Engineers Australia, and are recognised worldwide.
  • USQ is No. 1 in Australia for Engineering graduates in full-time work. (The Good Universities Guide, 2019)
  • USQ's research in Materials Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Crop and Pasture Production, and Agriculture, Land and Farm Management is recognised as well above world standard. (ERA, 2018)
  • Our partnership with John Deere enables the development of the next generation of agricultural technology – including machine automation and control such as driverless tractors.
  • The Agricultural Science and Engineering Precinct (ASEP) is helping supplement current USQ research into crop production, harvesting, and yield outputs to provide farmers with more accurate information for improved crop returns on their farming methods.

Career outcomes

Graduates of USQ’s Engineering and Built Environment degrees will have the skills and knowledge to succeed in their chosen specialisation as an accredited engineer or spatial science professional.
