    Event description

    Celebrate the opening of our new Applied Mechanics Hub!

    Swinburne University of Technology’s new Applied Mechanics Hub is now complete and we’re putting on a celebration!

    Part of our next gen_campus transformation, the new mechanical engineering facilities feature cutting edge tools to prepare our students for careers making things that move to help society grow and prosper.

    Join us for afternoon tea, find out more about the cutting-edge equipment in our new spaces, and win some great prizes!

    Date: Tuesday, 14 May 2024
    Time: 2.30 – 3.00pm
    Location: Applied Mechanics Hub - EN213, 214, 215 and 217

    About the Applied Mechanics Hub

    With a broad range of specialties in Swinburne’s mechanical engineering offering, the new labs will have something for everyone.

    The Thermodynamics Lab will provide an environment for students to study heat transfer and its application as a heat exchanger, in addition to the otto cycle (petrol) engine's performance.

    In the Statics Lab, students will gain hands-on, experiential learning using specialised experiment kits for analysis of trusses and beams.

    The Dynamics Lab will provide structural mechanics students with an understanding of the mechanics of materials and structures, focusing on the stress, deformation and stability of structural components. Engineering dynamics students will benefit from the space to study the mass moment of inertia, conservation of angular momentum and gyro effect, while machine dynamics students will synthesize and solve problems on linkage mechanisms, mechanics of machinery, engine dynamics and vibrations in the space.

    These labs will compliment Swinburne’s existing engineering facilities, including the Rapid Prototyping and Manufacturing Laboratory with its 3D printing and laser cutting equipment where students can manufacture parts for projects and research, and the Student Workshop where they can access more traditional hand and power tools.

    About next gen_campus

    Swinburne has embarked on a large program of work to transform our physical environment and deliver a better student experience. next gen_campus will ensure our vocational and higher students have access to the latest technology and advanced facilities here at Swinburne to support them wherever they are in their education journey. It encompasses nine transformative projects that will revitalise our Hawthorn, Croydon and Wantirna campuses.

    This vision has students at its core and is being developed in collaboration with our diverse student community, reflecting their expectations for an on-campus experience. next gen_campus will consider our students' needs and priorities for how they will use these facilities and spaces to work, study and interact with each other.
