UniSA has invested $7 million into redesigning and upgrading the Engineering facilities at the Mawson Lakes campus. Renovations include the establishment of new flexible learning spaces that will allow further collaboration between students, researchers and industry.
“With the opening of these upgraded facilities, students will have access to the same equipment used by industry, giving them the best possible start to their future careers,’’ – Professor Julie Mills , Pro Vice Chancellor for the Division of Information Technology, Engineering and the Environment.
The new and upgraded spaces will include:
- An advanced design studio for student use
- An Industry 4.0 Robotics and machine vision laboratory, connecting industry and students
- A flexible mechanical engineering research laboratory
- A sustainable energy systems laboratory
- A soils laboratory; and
- A power systems laboratory.
With the new facilities, students will have the opportunity to work with industry partners on projects such as testing manufacturing automation before the industry partner implement it into their product chains.
