SWINBURNE UNIVERSITY

In 2017, Swinburne celebrated 25 years as a university. Throughout this time, Swinburne has persevered in its commitment to not only provide, but also transform education through strong industry engagement, social inclusion, and a desire to innovate and to create positive change.

Swinburne’s Faculty of Science, Engineering and Technology is at the forefront of the university’s focus on developing innovative solutions to real-world problems. The Faculty is not only a leader in research, but also in women in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) aligning with Swinburne’s goal to enhance gender equity and diversity through participation in the Science in Australia Gender Equity (SAGE) Pilot Program.

Swinburne announced the recipients of the Vice-Chancellor’s Research Fellowships for women in STEM disciplines in 2017. The fellowships are designed to address the critical underrepresentation of women in STEM research and teaching.

The recipients of the fellowship are supported by a fellowship grant as well as through mentorship, research training and personal career development, with underlying on-going positions in the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Technology.

Swinburne recently debuted in the physical sciences category of the Times Higher Education subject rankings, showing excellence in the fields of physics, chemistry, astronomy and related subjects.

The ranking came in a year that saw achievements including a world-first graphene certification centre established at the university, Swinburne engineers winning the W H Warren medal, Swinburne’s Factory of the Future receiving a $135 million grant from Siemens and engineering professor Geoff Brooks honoured with the (Metals, Materials and Minerals Society) TMS Extraction and Processing Division Distinguished Lecturer Award.

Swinburne’s achievements in science, engineering and technology reflect a continuing commitment to world-class research and innovation that creates impact.
