The Monash University Smart Manufacturing Hub (SMH) project involves the gradual redevelopment of the Clayton Campus Building 60 and 69 over a 2-4 year timeframe. SMH includes a series of projects that respond to unique opportunities to revolutionise engineering in Victoria, build contemporary spaces for smart manufacturing investigations and enhance an ecosystem of convergence between industry, workforce and the leaders of the future. SMH will provide space for industry to collocate on campus, for interactions with undergraduate and postgraduate students and for entrepreneurial activities. It will act as an industry portal for accessing talent and capabilities.
