UTS onboard new Western Sydney opportunity in the Bradfield City Centre

Media Release

The NSW Government has announced a new partnership with the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) which moves the university a step closer to being an early activator in the Bradfield city centre.

Minister for Jobs, Investment, Tourism and Western Sydney Stuart Ayres said the agreement with UTS will also provide a platform to support the community through learning, research and engagement in the Western Parkland City.

"The Bradfield city centre, on the doorstep of the Western Sydney International (Nancy-Bird Walton) Airport, will be a world class education, training and research precinct making it the perfect fit for a leading public university of technology, such as UTS," Mr Ayres said.

"We look forward to working closely with UTS on what their presence in the Aerotropolis will look like and what involvement they will have with the Advanced Manufacturing Research Facility (AMRF).

"By working together the NSW Government and UTS will deliver better education outcomes for the Western Parkland City and help to drive the creation of jobs across the region."

Vice-Chancellor and President of the University of Technology Sydney Attila Brungs said the collaboration presents an exciting opportunity to help create a high-skill jobs hub across aerospace and defence, manufacturing, healthcare, freight and logistics, agribusiness, education and research industries.

"An increasingly globalised and automated workforce means we must all learn, re-learn and retrain throughout our lifetime," Professor Brungs said.

"UTS looks forward to working closely with the NSW Government to build a different type of university, community and industry engagement model. One where universities are embedded across the city and not limited to their traditional campuses.

"To do this we want to build on the incredible successes such as our Tech Lab in Botany where industry, researchers and students collaborate to drive innovative solutions to complex problems. We look forward to taking our learnings from Tech Lab and establishing a physical presence in Western Sydney."
