Munster Campus Stage 2 now open

Munster Campus Stage 2 is now open and offers additional training facilities for students hoping to pursue, or further, their career in the oil and gas, chemical processing, engineering and resources industries.

The $12.4 million Stage 2 expansion was officially opened by Education and Training Minister Sue Ellery on Wednesday 15 November.

Training at the Munster Campus provides students with hands-on experience in a real life industry setting.  The new facilities are housed in two new buildings.

Building B provides new facilities for electrical engineering students relocating from Beaconsfield and Henderson campuses.  It consists of:

  • Computer based learning areas
  • Specialist electrical engineering laboratories
  • Navy specialist training room
  • Informal study spaces
  • Student amenities

Building C consists of specialist materials testing areas and workshops, a mechatronics laboratory, simulation spaces, computer based learning areas and staff and student support areas. In addition Building C has a specialised process plant control room, complete with debriefing, communications and simulated areas. 

Education and Training Minister Sue Ellery said, “These upgrades put South Metropolitan TAFE at the forefront of flexible and innovative training in mining, oil and gas, engineering and mineral and chemical processing.  ACEPT and applied engineering study areas will now have a greater ability to share facilities and resources - further strengthening engagement between South Metropolitan TAFE, students and industry.”
