The Joint Research Centre in Advanced Manufacturing (JRCAM) is a collaborative activity between Swinburne University of Technology, Shandong University Weihai, Weihai Economic and Technological Development Zone and the Australian Education Management Group.

This venture provides opportunities to share research facilities and collaborate on key research projects. As part of this, the Centre works with industry partners to create positive economic and social outcomes utilising advanced manufacturing research. We also provide opportunities for students to undertake PhD’s jointly supervised by both universities.
