With more than 40,000 students and offering more than 400 courses and research programs, Queensland University of Technology (QUT) is a modern university for the real world.
We began operating as QUT in January 1989, following approval of our status as a university.
But our history truly begins in colonial times
As our learning environment and the world is transformed by technology, we're harnessing the strengths of different disciplines to create new conceptual and methodological innovations.
We discover effective, viable and innovative solutions by collaborating with industry, end users, and key players in the professions and global economy.
We aspire to be a globally leading university through high-impact, transdisciplinary research, strong partnerships, and a unique focus on technology and innovation, led by our Deputy Vice-Chancellor of Research and Innovation, Arun Sharma.
We're focused on the technology and innovation that will enable our society and our economy to progress.We've identified and invested in areas of research identified as priorities for the world, the nation and the state. In each of these areas we're continuing to build on the strength and experience of our experts.
