Executive Dean, Faculty of Engineering

_______________________________________________________________________

QUT is an ambitious institution, driven to provide transformative education and research relevant to our communities. Our mission as the university for the real world pervades and infuses everything we do. As Australia’s fastest-growing research university, it invests heavily in collaborative learning and interdisciplinary research environments, and its courses are in high demand.

To improve the way we work and deliver sustained savings, QUT is seeking to realign its organisational structure. This has led to a formal proposal to change the University’s Faculty structure which includes separating our existing Science and Engineering Faculty to create a new Faculty of Engineering.  This is currently subject to a consultation process under the University’s Enterprise Agreements. The new role of Executive Dean, Faculty of Engineering forms part of this consultation. 

The Faculty of Engineering will aim to shape the world we live in by engineering sustainable and innovative liveable environments. Our programs focus on teaching, research and advancing the state of the art in robotics, manufacturing, AI, architecture, and construction to build a better quality of life. We adapt and innovate infrastructure to meet real-world challenges such as overpopulation, natural disasters and climate change. Our work seeks high level engagement with the real world, operating autonomously in our natural and built environments to benefit industries such as health, transport, aero-space, manufacturing, mining and agriculture.

QUT is seeking an outstanding leader to fill the position of Executive Dean, Faculty of Engineering. Our university is one of Australia’s leading institutions and the Executive Dean will be responsible for leading the faculty into the future by building on its strong reputation as a local, national and international leader. A focus on innovation will be expected, along with a strong academic background.

The Executive Dean is a member of the Executive Management Team and reports to the Provost. As well as having an important internal role within the university, the appointee will be committed to pursuing QUT’s linkages with the relevant professional groups and industry.
