The Engineering 'Hubs and Spokes' Project is a collaborative program between The Australian National University and the University of South Australia. It draws on the expertise of the ANU as Australia's highest ranked and most research-intensive Australian university and UniSA as one of the nation's largest universities with a rapidly growing research capacity.
The project was established in 2008 when the ANU and the UniSA signed a Memorandum of Understanding building on the Federal Government's collaborative approach for strengthening Australia's higher education sector.
The project is funded by the Australian Government Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations. In December 2008 the ANU College of Engineering and Computer Science in partnership with the University of South Australia won a $3.8M bid for The Engineering 'Hubs and Spokes' Project.
Professor Chris Baker, Dean of the College of Engineering and Computer Science and project champion said, "winning this bid is terrific news for the College by allowing us to develop and benefit from new ways of working that will have a lasting impact on the way we do things, and the way in which the engineering profession will benefit."
