Australia: La Trobe and Microsoft in major technology partnership

La Trobe University recently announced the establishment of a new Information and Communication Technology (ICT) centre, in partnership with Microsoft.

It is the first campus-based Microsoft centre in Australia, and will be located in the research and development park in the University’s main Melbourne campus. Students, academics and local businesses will benefit from access to cutting edge hardware and software, providing start-up facilities for research and product development.

Professor Paul Johnson, La Trobe University’s Vice-Chancellor said the centre will “encourage the innovative abilities of our students, furthering their entrepreneurial skills and career prospects.” Mentoring opportunities with software giants such as Microsoft, Intel and i-mate will also benefit students and small businesses.

As a member of the International Network of Universities, La Trobe has a strong commitment to globalisation in all study areas and has links with over 250 institutions in over 40 countries. It has also formed a new alliance with HCL Technologies Ltd, India’s leading IT services company, providing recruitment and internship opportunities for recent La Trobe graduates.

The main Bundoora campus of La Trobe University is about 30 minutes from Melbourne’s city centre, and is one of the largest in Australia. It covers 200 hectares of beautiful parkland and even has its own on-campus wildlife sanctuary. Over 3000 international students attend classes in this safe, supportive environment.

For more information about computer science and electronic engineering opportunities at La Trobe University, or about any of their other programs, talk with one of our student counsellors.
