A new university to rise in Western Sydney Aerotropolis

A world-class higher education institution will be created in the heart of the new Western Sydney Aerotropolis as four of the leading universities in New South Wales (NSW) join forces, according to a recent report.

An Australian first, the project will have a clear focus on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education.

This initiative will guarantee that the young people in Western Sydney will be prepared for the jobs of tomorrow.

The Vice-Chancellors from the four universities, namely the University of Newcastle, the University of New South Wales, the University of Wollongong and the Western Sydney University have signed a Statement of Intent with the NSW Government in order to deliver the new higher education institution.

The NSW Government is working hard to create more jobs in every part of NSW and the Western Sydney Aerotropolis will create thousands of employment opportunities for young people.

This is a great initiative since the jobs of tomorrow will rely heavily on STEM. It will provide the students in Western Sydney greater access to world-class higher education.

By leveraging on the expertise of the four institutions, students, employees and the wider community will have unparalleled access to innovative teaching and research.

Quality jobs are built on a foundation of quality education. This education alliance is exactly what the Western Sydney Aerotropolis needs to be a jobs powerhouse of the future.

The project builds on the significant momentum already made on the Western Sydney Aerotropolis.

An Aerotropolis Investor Forum was hosted by the NSW Premier in Western Sydney last May. More than 250 local and international business leaders were seeking to secure their place at the 10,000-hectare green field site around the Western Sydney Airport.

With a 24-hour international airport at its core, the Western Sydney Aerotropolis will be a thriving hub for education and leading industries thereby generating huge high-skill jobs boost for the area.

Some of the industries include advanced manufacturing, aerospace, defence and agribusiness.

Located in the new Aerotropolis precinct, the four universities will create one campus. Students at the new institution will have unparalleled access to industry research, development and employment opportunities.

Higher education has traditionally been an intensely competitive sector.

With the new Multiversity, the universities are demonstrating how collaborative university partnerships can transform the region and produce the graduates, research and industry links needed to make the Aerotropolis a success.

It will become a world-class institution that has brought together the best and brightest educators to develop the state’s future scientists, engineers, and mathematicians.

The four universities bring a connected network of 180,000 students, researchers and academics to the Aerotropolis, with an established presence across every major Western Sydney centre.

This is considered to be the first new university built in Sydney in 50 years and will transform Western Sydney for generations to come.

Stage One of the new university will be open by 2026, the same time the new A$ 5.3 billion Commonwealth funded airport is expected to be operational.
