Swinburne Sarawak Nurturing Tomorrow's Tech Talent

Swinburne Sarawak Nurturing Tomorrow's Tech Talent

The Melbourne-based Swinburne University of Technology set up its first overseas branch in Sarawak back in 2000; but what makes this campus interesting is the fact that it is jointly owned by Swinburne University and the Sarawak state government. How do institutions like Swinburne Sarawak feature in the state’s long-term plans to provide free tertiary education to resident Sarawakians? We speak to Pro-Vice Chancellor and CEO of Swinburne Sarawak Prof. Lau Hieng Ho for more on the institution and the role of education in building a prosperous Sarawak.
