CQU started out as the Rockhampton Institute of Technology, and in 1992 became an official university under the name University of Central Queensland (UCQ). Shortly later in 1994 it adopted its current name (possibly due to confusion with UQ, the University of Queensland). CQU received seven five star ratings from the Good Universities Guide [1] in 2003, giving it the most top ratings of any regional university in Australia. In 2005, according to Australian Government Department of Education, Science and Training – Teaching Performance Rankings August 2005 [2], CQU rated in the bottom 4 (out of 37) universities in Australia.
