A $140 million state-of-the-art advanced manufacturing teaching and research facility will be established at Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne.

Announcing the new project, the Minister for Manufacturing, Senator Kim Carr said the new Advanced Technologies Centre will be a major boost to Australia’s manufacturing and materials industry.

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

Senator Carr said the centre will deliver important economic and social benefits for all Australians.

“This centre will expand the university’s capacity to produce job-ready graduates for the forefront of advanced manufacturing technologies,” Senator Carr said.

“It will forge closer links between industry and research through Swinburne’s strong network of manufacturing scientists and engineers. It will develop cutting edge technologies and help keep Australian manufacturing industries among the most competitive, innovative and capable in the world.”

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