The University of Melbourne has purchased land at Fishermans Bend to establish a new campus and expand the Melbourne School of Engineering at the heart of Australia's new precinct for engineering and design.
Set to open in the early 2020s, the new campus will enable engineering and IT students and academics to connect and collaborate with leading local and international organisations, across the transport, energy, manufacturing, water, food, mining, defense and infrastructure sectors. With increased partnerships between education and industry, we will be able to reverse the brain drain by keeping our brightest minds right here in Victoria and attracting the best talent from around the world.Source: https://ourcampus.unimelb.edu.au/fishermans-bend
