    To be eligible you must:

    • Be studying full-time and onshore in Australia.
    • Be nominated by an enrolling school or institute at UQ.
    • Be assessed by the Graduate School as meeting all conditions for admission to the research higher degree program.
    • Not hold a qualification at the same or a higher level than the research higher degree program you are undertaking.
    • Not be receiving a living allowance award, scholarship or salary providing a benefit greater than 75% of the RTP Scholarship living allowance rate to undertake the research higher degree program.
    • Not be receiving a Commonwealth funded tuition fee scholarship.

    Students applying for this scholarship should plan for a start date in January 2018.

    Students who meet UQ Graduate School conditions of admission should also have a Bachelor of Engineering with first class honours, or a Masters degree with equivalent academic performance.  

    Students need very strong skills in embedded systems, both hardware and software.  Skills in human-computer interaction would be beneficial.  Degrees such as BE or BE/ME in Electrical & Computer Engineering, or dual engineering/IT degrees would be especially suitable, but excellent students from disciplines such as Electrical Engineering, Software Engineering or Mechatronics Engineering with the required skills are welcome to apply.
