What is in the Engineering Quarter?

Space for us to grow

At the College of Engineering, we continually strive for excellence in our teaching and research. The Bay Campus provides the space for growth and enable us to build on our current success, co-locating industry with our academic staff and students.

The Bay Campus includes purpose built facilities for students, staff and businesses allowing for the benefits of co-location, enabling applied research, an accelerated innovation pathway and employment opportunities.
