ECMS Workshop

The old Holden Laboratory and part of the original Engineering Workshop were refurbished to create a contemporary workshop and ‘maker-space’ for hands-on learning.

The new facility supports active and group-based learning and teaching, creates opportunities for cross-disciplinary and cross-faulty collaboration, and enhances the student experience.
