Yes, it is -- at least on windows.

If you add CONFIG += console to a regular gui Qt .pro file,
your program will open up a console window (in addition to
displaying its gui) when it starts up.  If you write to cout
(stdout) it will show up in the console.  (I haven't tried reading
from cin from a console attached to a Qt gui app.)

I've done this with Qt 4.8 on windows.  I don't know about
Qt 5, but I expect that it will work the same.
