On 1 July 1992, Swinburne officially gained university status when we were proclaimed Swinburne University of Technology. But we’ve been providing the transformative power of education since way before that. In 1908, George and Ethel Swinburne founded us. Swinburne was built on equality, fairness and the bold vision for a better tomorrow.
