Covey Employee Dr Jen Mullaney First Engineering PhD for USC

Covey Employee Dr Jen Mullaney - University of Sunshine Coast's first PhD graduate in Engineering

JenMullaney 300x341The University of the Sunshine Coast’s first PhD graduate in Engineering is working as an environmental scientist with a leading local consultancy to improve the sustainability of urban developments across the region.

Dr Jen Mullaney gained her doctoral degree at the recent USC Graduation Ceremony, four years after arriving from Abertay University in Dundee, Scotland, and six years after USC introduced its accredited engineering program.

Her thesis showed the value of using permeable pavements, rather than traditional non-draining pavement, to promote the healthy growth of street trees. 

Dr Mullaney said her USC experience had been life-changing and she was delighted to now be living on the Sunshine Coast and working for local engineering firm Covey Associates.

“Moving here to study was the best decision I ever made,” she said. “My background is in geography and I was doing urban water management research and consultancy work in Dundee. Now I have a PhD in Civil Engineering and this wonderful lifestyle.”

Her principal supervisor, Senior Lecturer in Civil Engineering Dr Terry Lucke, enjoyed seeing his student become USC’s first Engineering PhD graduate.“
