Welcome to Swinburne University of Technology Sarawak Campus located in Kuching, the capital city of Sarawak, Malaysia.

Swinburne Sarawak, established through a partnership between Swinburne University of Technology in Australia and the State Government of Sarawak, is the highest ranking international university in Borneo based on the inaugural Asia-Pacific University Ranking 2017 by Times Higher Education (THE) released on 4 July 2017.

A world class university with advanced teaching & learning facilities, Swinburne Sarawak prides itself in offering a range of industry-applicable courses such as business, engineering, computing, design, science at foundation, degree, master and PhD levels. The university offers degrees equivalent to those of its home campus in Melbourne, Australia and as a result, students are awarded the same Australian testamur.

Our students, academics and researchers are at the forefront of some of the cutting edge discoveries and are addressing the great technological challenges in engineering, construction, healthcare, technology, agriculture and more. Emphasising on personalised, industry focussed education, we want to ensure our graduates excel in their technical skills and are forward ‘industry’ thinkers.

Our vision is to transform learning through Swinburne’s Transforming Learning Higher Education Strategy where the focus is on developing Future-Ready Learners equipped for employment and business creation. This is exemplified by the high graduate employment rates based on our latest graduate tracer survey; an overall employment rate of 93% and 100% for several Business and Engineering majors.

Student transfer options at the end of any semester are available for Swinburne students interested in gaining exposure abroad. Besides our home campus in Melbourne, students may choose to spend a semester or longer abroad with partners from 7 countries. So whether you complete your studies in Kuching or at our campus in Melbourne, you are part of an international network from your first day with Swinburne.

Our students come from over 40 countries and this contributes to our campus’s multicultural background and vibrancy. In today’s global and all-inclusive economy, it is a priceless advantage for all our students to interact with a global cohort and in itself is a hugely important component of their education.

Swinburne’s 16.5 acre Sarawak campus is centrally located with easy access to lifestyle, healthcare, transport and commercial hubs which makes it an exciting place for university life. Complemented by the vast, natural beauty of Borneo, Kuching is a rapidly growing cosmopolitan city that is shaped by a unique blend of sophisticated development and cultural appreciation.

Swinburne Sarawak is a place where you will feel comfortable, engaged and stimulated and we look forward to welcoming you to the campus for an experience of a lifetime.
