Located in one of the city’s most attractive inner suburbs, the campus offers a desirable student lifestyle and a state-of-the-art learning environment. Swinburne has a flexible and forward-thinking understanding of international government, education and business priorities, and is responsive to the changing needs of industry. We provide students with access to high-quality teaching, exposure to high-impact global research, and active engagement with both industry and the community. Swinburne invests heavily in providing our students and researchers with state-of-the-art facilities and equipment. Significant recent developments include the $100 million Advanced Manufacturing and Design Centre (AMDC) and the $140 million Advanced Technologies Centre (ATC) at our Hawthorn campus. The ATC houses leading-edge research facilities including the Smart Structures Laboratory, the first of its kind in Australia. A truly international university, Swinburne has developed successful relationships with universities around the world. There is extensive collaborative research and mobility of teaching staff between Swinburne and our partner universities.
