Coalition commits cash for CQU

At last, a coalition higher education funding announcement to report

Scott Morrison promises CQU $30m for a central Queensland school of mining and manufacturing. The money will build on existing facilities at the Gladstone and Rockhampton campuses. The university says the money will go to infrastructure, plus, “state-of-the-art equipment,” not to mention training for, “cutting edge and emerging technologies.”  This is one of very few coalition capital commitments to universities this campaign but even if Mr Morrison is not PM next week CQU will still do ok. Labor has promised it $14.5m for three new facilities.
