Paving the way for future Engineering success 

CQUniversity has established a way for Engineering graduates to pave the way (literally) for the success of those following in their footsteps. 

An Alumni Walk will display graduate details etched into granite pavers laid in the courtyard of the Engineering Precinct (buildings 28, 29 & 30) at the Rockhampton Campus. This will create a permanent testimonial to the hard work of students.

The purchase of a paver includes a contribution to the CQUniversity Engineering Fund, ensuring students continue to have access to the best technical equipment to aid their learning and research activities.

The Engineering Equipment Fund was kick-started with a donation from Chancellor Rennie Fritschy.  

Four alumni who have already made a significant contribution to the development and success of the CQUniversity Engineering program have been honoured with pavers. These alumni are Brendan Burkett (now Professor of BioMechanics, University of Sunshine Coast), Graham Scott (now a Partner at Brown Consulting), Tim Griffin (now Owner, The Griffin Group) and Neil Lowry (now Executive General Manager (Network Asset Manager), Ergon Energy).
