Promotion of UQ Materials Performance’s expertise is co-ordinated through UniQuest Pty Limited, which is the commercialisation arm of The University of Queensland.
UniQuest Pty Limited is an incorporated company, owned by The University of Queensland, and its key mandate is to commercialise the University’s acclaimed intellectual and physical resources to both the Australian and International communities. As a result, UniQuest’s Consulting and Research Division activelyseeks new research projects and commercial opportunities on which to collaborate and add value.
UniQuest manages contractual and legal negotiations on behalf of UQ Materials Performance, as well as providing the consortium with extensive insurance cover, such as professional indemnity and public liability insurances. Therefore, clients of UQ Materials Performance can be assured of a high standard of performance and protection from their business relationship, and key consortium principals are not distracted by administrative requirements and can concentrate all of their energy on their respective clients’ research projects.

The Centre for Microscopy and Microanalysis (CMM) is an interdisciplinary research, teaching and service centre which also plays an integral role within the science programs of The University of Queensland, participating both in undergraduate and postgraduate education. UQMP draws heavily on the extensive electron microscopy and microanalysis resources at the CMM. UQMP also acts as the commercial branch of the CMM when industrial problems require the use of the CMM's resources.

- UQMP operates out of the school of Mechanical and Mining Engineering, however we often collaborate with other schools to facilitate our clients' needs. Our close relationships with the schools in this faculty provides us with access to a wide range of equipment and expertise. For more information on the EAIT faculty click here.
The SoMME supports a large number of research groups working in the fields of mechanical, mining and materials engineering. The SoMME staff and its academics are also responsible for producing high quality engineering graduates in these critical fields of engineering. Through their involvement in education and research in this area, the school has developed a number of formal relationships with:
- ABB Group
- Engineers Without Borders
- Mining Education Australia
- Newcrest Mining Limited
- Nihon Superior
- Rio Tinto
UQMP's principal, Dr Jeff Gates, contributes to the education of undergraduate engineers at UQ by acting as the course coordinator for the third year mechanical and materials engineering subject MECH3300 "Finite Element Method & Fracture Mechanics".
