Advanced Manufacturing and Design Centre
Our Advanced Manufacturing and Design Centre (AMDC) bridges the gap between imagination and reality. The AMDC represent a $100m investment and allows us to provide industry and organisations with unparalleled facilities and equipment to explore conceptual ideas for manufacturing next generation products.
The Advanced Manufacturing and Design Centre is a state-of-the-art facility that gives researchers and students the opportunity to use the latest manufacturing and design techniques and technologies.
Opened at Swinburne's Hawthorn campus in 2014, the centre is a hub for researchers carrying out world-leading research, education and training.
Virtual tour of the AMDC
Take a virtual tour of Swinburne's Advanced Manufacturing and Design Centre (AMDC), located at Hawthorn campus in Melbourne. Completed in mid-2014, the AMDC promotes innovation and collaborative learning and functions as a centre for excellence in manufacturing and design.
The AMDC shares its equipment, knowledge and commercial outcome in a collaborative approach that builds strong links across the higher education, research, vocational training and manufacturing sectors. These collaborative efforts enhance Australia’s ability to develop an internationally competitive, highly productive and technologically advanced manufacturing sector.
The $100 million centre was built with the support of the Commonwealth Government, which provided $40 million through its Education Investment Fund and is our second 5-star green star building, certified by the Green Building Council of Australia.
