The Campus in Sarawak is a licensed branch campus university in Malaysia which offers selected undergraduate, postgraduate and research degree courses identical to those offered at other Swinburne campuses in Australia. It also offers pre-university foundation programs. The Campus was established in 2000 as Swinburne Sarawak Institute of Technology and on gaining university status in Malaysia changed its name to Swinburne University of Technology (Sarawak Campus) in June 2004.
The Campus occupies a 16.5-acre site in central Kuching, the state capital of Sarawak. The Sarawak Campus has students from Malaysia and other countries, and plans to expand rapidly as its staff and facilities are developed continuously to allow a greater number and diversity courses to be offered.
The Campus in Sarawak is a joint venture between Swinburne University of Technology in Australia and the State Government of Sarawak through two of its shareholders – Yayasan Sarawak and the Sarawak Higher Education Foundation. The campus is part of a long-term strategy by Swinburne Australia, established in 1908, to globalise its operations and provide its students with international living, working and learning opportunities.
