Tech Solutions Hub

Creating the link between idea and industry, the Tech Solutions Hub is positioned to create pathways for individuals seeking to develop their skillset at a range of levels and connecting with industry leaders.

The Tech Solutions Hub is co-located with industry partners at the Tasmanian Minerals Manufacturing and Energy Council (TMMEC) facilities in Burnie. In addition to networking and professional collaboration opportunities, the facility provides direct access to the latest in equipment manufacturing technology which you use to undertake real project with industry partners.

Recent collaborations have included:

  • Tasmania Police on 3D printed drone guards.
  • Grange resources on building remote weather stations.
  • Hydro Tasmania on hydro power educational kits.
  • Taz Drones Solutions on Drone components.

The Tech Solutions Hub has been successful in completing projects specific to industry requirements and have engaged our students throughout the process to enhance their skill set and capabilities. This is an area we can further expand and provide solutions for our industry partners. Not only does industry gain innovative solutions, but our students also gain exposure to project capabilities they may not experience in other learning environments.
