Universities collab on advanced manufacturing research centre

Swinburne University of Technology, is expanding its partnership with Shandong University Weihai (SDUW), along with Weihai Economic and Technological Development Zone (WZ) and the Australian Education and Management Group (AEMG).

The three parties have signed an agreement to establish a joint research centre in advanced manufacturing – which will focus on;
  • Automation & mechatronics
  • 3D printing
  • Biomedical devices and medical manufacturing
  • Electronics manufacturing
  • Advanced Manufacturing Materials
The collaboration will give Swinburne the opportunity to share research facilities, enable researcher collaboration for joint research projects and papers, undertake joint supervision of doctoral level research students, and engage with industry, Swinburne writes in a statement. “As part of this partnership, students will have the opportunity to undertake a PhD, jointly supervised by Swinburne and SDUW working on industry projects. They will have access to facilities at both universities and work on industry projects in the Weihai Economic and Technological Development Zone,” Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research and Development) Professor Aleksandar Subic says. Researchers from both universities will engage with WZ’s industries in the areas of advanced manufacturing, in particular automation and advanced materials processing. The joint research centre will be located at WZ’s science and technology park, which is due to launch in early 2017.
