Over 110 years ago Swinburne opened its doors with a driving focus in mind: to offer education to a section of society otherwise denied further education. Today, we continue our commitment to provide and transform education through strong industry engagement, social inclusion, a desire to innovate and, above all, a determination to create positive change. 

We have an international reputation for quality research that connects science and technology with business and the community. Our standing in prestigious world academic rankings reflects our commitment to high-quality teaching, research and graduate outcomes. No matter who our students are or how they want to drive their future — we will help them fulfil their goals in a connected world.
