With four universities signing on to develop the aerospace, engineering and science institution, a new world-class university is set to rise at the future Western Sydney Aerotropolis adjacent the Western Sydney Airport at Badgerys Creek.
Collaborating with the University of Newcastle, University of NSW, University of Wollongong, and Western Sydney University to put up this new higher education facility that will be an Australia-first, the new institution’s goal is to provide a specialised curriculum that will be centred on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education to prepare the youth in Western Sydney for the jobs of tomorrow.
As a multi-billion dollar development, the Aerotropolis is going to be a hub for education and leading industries such as advanced manufacturing, aerospace, defence and agribusiness that will boost high-skilled jobs in the region.
The Western Sydney Aerotropolis is to generate more than 12,000 smart jobs as well as educate over 10,000 students and provide more than 3,000 homes. Together with the $5.3 billion Western Sydney Airport, the first stage of the new university is set top open by 2026.
