Clean economy focus areas

Electrotechnology and engineering

Swinburne University is known for offering practical hands-on experience to students across the fields of electrotechnology and engineering. It has expanded these offerings with sustainable work practice units, especially with a focus on energy sector challenges. Swinburne University continues to build out capabilities in renewable energy, especially in high-demand electrical courses.


As one of the top 300 dual-sector institutions in the world, Swinburne University has extensive research capabilities (i.e. researchers, specialist institutes and centres, strategic platforms and initiatives). Swinburne University leverages this in the Victorian Hydrogen Hub (VH2), leading the research and development of the Victorian hydrogen sector. This hub was created through Swinburne University partnering with CSIRO and Germany’s AERNA 2036 (along with 14 other industry partners) and serves as a major national precinct funded by the Victorian Government for researching and developing the hydrogen sector.
