About Swinburne University of Technology
At Swinburne we believe university should be an adventure. It should be the kind of adventure that’s backed by a sense of confidence that you’re on the right path. And you should leave university knowing how to apply your knowledge in a practical sense. By knowing what your future career really entails, you are able to picture the path ahead.
We also understand it takes more than just qualifications to compete in today’s job market. That’s why for more than 50 years Swinburne has been partnering with leading Australian and global organisations to offer students workplace experiences. You’ll build invaluable skills and confidence in knowing you have what it takes to land a job in your field by graduation. We think it’s an approach that makes the adventure worth taking.
