Swinburne University of Technology’s new schools structure becomes effective today, aligning the university’s academic activity around six schools and the new Horizon 2025 strategy.
“Our new academic structure means that we are more aligned to Swinburne’s strategic purpose of bringing people and technology together to build a better world,” Professor Chris Pilgrim, Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) – Interim, said.
“Students and academics alike will benefit from this improved configuring of complementary disciplines to achieve academic advantage and growth,” he said.
Swinburne’s six higher education schools are now:
- School of Business, Law and Entrepreneurship, led by Professor Keryn Chalmers
- School of Design and Architecture, led by Professor Jane Burry
- School of Engineering, led by Professor Emad Gad
- School of Social Sciences, Media, Film and Education, led by Professor Mia Lindgren
- School of Health Sciences, led by Professor Bruce Thompson
- School of Science, Computing and Engineering Technologies, led by Professor Alex Stojcevski
Professor Mirko Bagaric will continue to lead the Swinburne Law School, which now becomes part of the School of Business, Law and Entrepreneurship.
As previously announced, Professor Virginia Kilborn will officially step into her new role as the inaugural Swinburne Chief Scientist.
“Swinburne’s open and collaborative approach to this design ensures that we are focused on delivering what’s best for our students and providing an environment for them to thrive,” Professor Pilgrim said.
“We are committed to providing opportunities for our students, such as work integrated learning, that will ensure that the university experience is an enriching one and offers real world opportunities.
“Current and new students can feel confident that Swinburne’s schools and courses will be the best available to help them build their new career, now,” he said.
