James Cook University (JCU), ranked in the top 2% of the World’s Tertiary Institutions by the Academic Ranking of World Universities, has been one of Australia’s pioneering Universities offering distinctive and high-quality degrees that equip students to understand and engage with the Global issues of today.

Professor Mohan Jacob, Associate Dean, Research Education, Professor College of Science and Engineering said, “JCU is a leader in Teaching and Research that addresses the critical challenges facing the Tropics. JCU is a community where Students get personalised attention through a lower student to staff ratio, and an authentic Australian Learning Environment.”
He also stated that, “JCU is a very unique University set out in Northern Queensland. More than being a University, we are proud to be a Community that has Students from different nationalities supporting each other to give a culturally authentic Australian experience. With a record on employability and planned new Courses tailor made for the Merit Holders, we are excited to be Opening Gateway of Opportunities for Students particularly in the field of Science and Engineering.”
James Cook University has introduced a new Program ‘Masters of Engineering, Masters of Global Development and Diploma of Engineering’. The University is also delimited by the spectacular ecosystems of the rainforests of the Wet Tropics, the dry savannahs, and the iconic Great Barrier Reef.
JCU’s one of its kind location facilitates students from Australia and overseas to study in a diverse physical environment unparalleled by any University in the world.
JCU engages with all of its Communities, Businesses and Industry to promote a sustainable region that is socially inclusive. “We are proud of our strong links with rural, remote and indigenous communities, and we are dedicated to ensuring that our teaching, learning and research deliver practical benefits to the peoples and industries of our area.”
There are specialist Centres and Institutes based at JCU that serve as hubs for Research and Innovation.
Infrastructure such as the Orpheus Island Research Station and the Daintree Rainforest Observatory add to the quality of the learning and research experience.
