Beyond that, we prioritise your learning experience above all else. Swinburne was ranked in the top three in Victoria for student satisfaction, outstripping the national average (QILT Student Experience Survey 2016). 

With that goal in mind, we recently launched the Bachelor of Engineering Practice – Australia’s first engineering degree that uses project-based learning, while eliminating lectures and exams. And that’s just for a start.
