Swinburne University’s new Advanced Technologies Centre to assist manufacturing industry

A $140 million advanced manufacturing teaching and research facility at Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne is expected to provide a boost to Australia’s manufacturing and materials industry.

The new Advanced Technologies Centre – funded by the Federal Government through the Education Investment Fund (EIF) – will strengthen Swinburne’s focus on advanced materials and manufacturing.

This centre will expand the university’s capacity to produce job-ready graduates capable of handling advanced manufacturing technologies. It will also forge closer links between industry and research through Swinburne’s strong network of manufacturing scientists and engineers.

The new Cetnre will develop cutting edge technologies and will enable the university and the Victorian industry sector to share resources and knowledge, and build upon their expertise.

The Advanced Technologies Centre was built with the assistance of over $11 million in Commonwealth support, the majority funded through the EIF.

Swinburne University of Technology also received an additional $40 million in funding through Round 3 of the EIF in 2010 for the Advanced Manufacturing Centre, to be built alongside the Advanced Technologies Centre.
