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.
With connections to the renowned research center, Centre for Agricultural Engineering,
UniSQ is the only institution in Australia and New Zealand to provide degrees in Agricultural Engineering. You will be fully equipped for the engineering profession with a focus on hands-on experience and industry-relevant courses. Along with the practical lab sessions and the 60 days of industrial experience, you will also finish a research project and dissertation in which you will apply all of your academic knowledge to a real-world issue. Your study will provide light on the role of an agricultural engineer, whether the topic is water allocation, intensive agriculture's environmental effects, or sustainable agricultural output. Additionally, the research project and dissertation might serve as a prerequisite for higher-level research degrees like the PhD.
