Trimble and Swinburne University of Technology are collaborating to establish a technology lab at Swinburne’s School of Engineering to serve its Department of Civil and Construction Engineering.
The Trimble Technology Lab will expand the university’s expertise in construction management, building information modelling, mixed-reality applications, future urban mobility and other topics, and provide hands-on experience of a range of Trimble solutions.
“The relationship between Swinburne University of Technology and Trimble is the first of its kind in Australia,” said Allyson McDuffie, Director of Education & Outreach at Trimble.
“Opening the Trimble Technology Lab on campus and incorporating Trimble’s industry-leading technology into their curriculum and research propels students to use their design and engineering skills to address the complex challenges facing an ever-changing world.”
“This will provide our students with important industry-based practical learning and technical skills that are crucial to their success in the workplace,” added Professor Hussein Dia, chair of the Department of Civil and Construction Engineering.
“It will give our students the opportunity to shape the direction of infrastructure design and be ready for engineering jobs of the future.”
