[Dr Amanda Caples - Victoria's Lead Scientist]

The establishment of the School of Engineering here at Fisherman's Bend provides Victoria with a huge opportunity to bring together our core capability that we have here in this state, in engineering.

If you look around the world, one of the key attributes of knowledge economies are the co-location of universities within a hub of industry partners.

This is what we have here at Fisherman's Bend, where the University of Melbourne is establishing its School of Engineering within a precinct that will include Defence Science Technologies, Boeing, and other major industry players, and that will provide students with the opportunity to engage with industry to better understand industry's problems and most importantly, develop solutions for those problems.
