The University of Queensland
UQ ranks among the world’s top universities, as measured by several key independent rankings, including the CWTS Leiden Ranking 2017 (35)*, the Performance Ranking of Scientific Papers for World Universities (41), US News Best Global Universities Rankings (45), QS World University Rankings (48), Academic Ranking of World Universities (55), and Times Higher Education World University Rankings (65).
More than 164 UQ staff (including honorary and adjunct appointments) and emeritus professors are Fellows of Australia’s learned academies, which include AAS, AAHMS, ASSA, ATSE, and AAH.
Teaching and learning excellence
Skilled and motivated teachers are integral to providing positive teaching and learning outcomes for students.
UQ has a strong focus on teaching excellence, having won more Australian Awards for University Teaching than any other in the country and attracting the majority of Queensland's highest academic achievers, as well as top interstate and overseas students.
The educators of UQ are committed to excellence in learning experiences and outcomes for their students.
The UQ Graduate School offers significant support to higher degree by research (HDR) students through a broad range of scholarships and research travel awards, dedicated office spaces, skills training, and professional development opportunities. The University introduced the Career Development Framework– another first nationally – designed to accelerate HDR students’ career development and enhance their employability. Evidence indicates that the University’s research excels in both quality and impact.
The Federal Government’s 2015 Excellence in Research for Australia exercise confirmed UQ as one of the nation’s top three universities, measured by the quality of its comprehensive range of specialised research fields. UQ’s outstanding critical mass offers researchers significant interdisciplinary capability. The assessment rated 100 per cent of UQ’s broad fields of research at or above world standard.
Over the last five years UQ has attracted more Australian Research Council funding for discovery and early-career research than any other Australian university. With three major campuses – located at St Lucia and Herston in Brisbane, and Gatton in South East Queensland – the University has invested substantially in construction and development, helping create great environments in which to study and research. UQ is committed to developing state-of-the-art learning spaces that are in step with industry demands and expectations.
Transformer Research at UQ
Transformer research at the University of Queensland is headed by Professor Tapan Saha (Professor of Electrical Engineering). We have a history of transformer research for more than 25 years. Transformer research is conducted within Power and Energy Systems research group, which is one of the six research groups in the School of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering. In 2017, we have established the Australasian Transformer Innovation Centre, which focuses on the asset management of power transformers in the modern electrical network. This centre is located within the School of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering at UQ.
We apply innovative research and industry experience together with professional training to help members operate their transformer fleets sustainably and efficiently. Our group includes industry experts in transformer asset management, as well as researchers and educators from leading Australian universities.
