Docklands Campus

When it comes to learning about automotive, few facilities rival our Automotive Centre of Excellence (ACE) Campus in the Docklands. 

Put simply, it’s one of the best pathways into the auto industry.

Docklands Campus

Our Docklands campus is located in the beautiful harbour-front suburb of Docklands. Adjacent to the Melbourne CBD, the campus is easily accessible by trams, which stop outside the campus.

Only a 5 minute walk to the central Southern Cross Train Station, it is extremely easy to get to campus wherever you are in Melbourne. Only a short stroll from the waterfront, you can enjoy trendy cafés and boutique shopping outside of class hours.

With the Victorian Urban Award of Excellence and a five-star green rating, the facility is now a major player in Auto Technology. It incorporates:

  • World-class vehicle and engine testing facilities.
  • New workshop spaces. 
  • A purpose-built auto electrical lab.

The campus is also a short stroll away from many of Melbourne’s major retail, service and manufacturing industries.

Feel free to pop down to the campus for a visit. We look forward to seeing you there!
