    Industry + Swinburne

    Our collaborations and partnerships upgrade lives by providing creative and innovative solutions to the world’s prickliest problems. Partner with us, like Amazon Web Services did, and we established the Social Good Cloud Innovation Centre. Or like when Siemens did, and we co-developed the world’s first Industry 4.0 focussed associate degree. Or, when with Adobe, we became Australia’s first Creative Campus.
