Swinburne University of Technology is committed to support high quality research and research training which is relevant to national goals, and of social, commercial and cultural value to the community. Swinburne's approach to developing its research profile is through focused growth in fields of research applicable to industry and community needs.

Swinburne aims to ensure that the research and professional activities of its staff lead to effective transfer of scholarship and technology, in order to:

  • assist industry and the community in meeting state and national priorities;
  • enrich the cultural life of the Australian community; and
  • foster international cooperation.
As a small university, Swinburne seeks to concentrate and broaden its research efforts in selected areas of excellence.

The University has four major Research Centres including the Centre for Applied Colliod and BioColliod Science. IRIS, the Industrial Research Institute Swinburne, is a leading organisation for applied research and technology diffusion to industry
