Swinburne University of Technology

Victoria - Australia



Swinburne is a large and culturally diverse organisation. A desire to innovate and bring about positive change motivates our students and staff. The result is in an institution that grows and evolves each year.

Over 100 years ago Swinburne began with a simple premise: to provide technical education to a sector of society otherwise denied further education.

For over a century Swinburne has committed to innovative education, strong industry engagement and social inclusion. 

Swinburne is a globally-engaged institution leading the way in science, technology, business, design and innovation. We attract world-class minds and participate in world-changing projects and partnerships.
