The University of Southern Queensland, also known as UniSQ and formerly known as USQ, is a medium-sized regional university with three campuses located in Toowoomba, Springfield, and Ipswich in Queensland, Australia. It provides classes in the following fields: law, medicine, engineering, science, business, education, and the arts. It runs three research institutes and seven research centers that concentrate on a variety of commercial, agricultural, scholarly, scientific, technological, and environmental challenges.
Australia's largest Japanese-designed garden, Australia's largest solar-integrated parking, and a library with rainforest and water elements are among the university's notable features. The university has received praise for its initiatives to reduce violence against women, and the Federal Government's Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA) named it an employer of choice for gender equality.
As a regional university, UniSQ makes sure that its curricula meet the needs of the local and regional labor market, participate in regional social and economic development, and support the local community.
Become an aerospace engineer to advance current mechanics and technology while creating airplanes, spacecraft, and aerospace machinery. Examine airworthiness and aircraft handling in both routine and emergency scenarios, or assist in improving green and fuel-efficient technology.
The mechanical and electrical and electronic strands of UniSQ's aerospace specialization both come within the national Engineering Register Areas of Practice for Engineers Australia. In the mechanical branch, you can focus on aerodynamics and propulsion or aerospace transport structures to further refine your skills. The two mechanical strands investigate advanced aerodynamics, propulsion systems, simulations, hydraulic systems, and the strength of aircraft transport structures under static and dynamic loads. Both directions develop abilities to use aircraft upgrades. In the Electrical and Electronics strand, you'll learn about aircraft systems including navigation, communication, human-machine interfaces, specialized electronics design, and intelligent sensor networks. You'll also develop skills that are useful for designing, maintaining, training, and simulating aerospace systems.
The research project and dissertation requirements for this degree can serve as a springboard for positions in the Australian space programs' sector or for pursuit of higher research degrees, including a PhD. The iLAuNCH initiative, a partnership between three institutions and more than 20 business partners to increase Australia's sovereign space capabilities, is led by UniSQ. Through research initiatives at the Institute of Advanced Engineering and Space Sciences and the Centre for Future Materials, UniSQ is expanding its influence in the aerospace industry.
