New academic structure at QUT

Vice Chancellor Margaret Sheil announces another calmly considered set of changes

With Council approval yesterday, the new model for faculties goes to consultation according to the Enterprise Agreement.

“Council acknowledged the collegial way in which staff have engaged with this process and the hard work and contributions of all the staff who have provided feedback,” Professor Sheil told staff last night.

The new top-level structure is

* new Faculty of Business and Law: (School of Justice moves to Creative Industries)

* new Faculty of Creative Industries, Education and Social Justice: (Education is now a separate faculty)

* new Faculty of Engineering (previously combined with Science)

* Faculty of Health (remains unchanged)

* new Faculty of Science: (six schools now separated from engineering)
