RMIT Vice-Chancellor and President Martin Bean CBE said the partnership with the Australian Grand Prix Corporation enabled the University to showcase its leadership, not only in design, but in harnessing disruptive new technologies.
“When a student comes to RMIT, they know they’ll get real industry connections and hands-on experience – this kind of collaboration is our promise made real,” he said.
Now in its second year, RMIT’s partnership with the Australian Grand Prix Corporation will come to life in the Industry and Innovation Precinct at the 2018 Formula 1® Rolex Australian Grand Prix from 22–25 March.
The precinct highlights Victoria’s outstanding contribution to the automotive, defence, aviation and advanced manufacturing industries and is the ultimate learning hub for thousands of students, future innovators and entrepreneurs.
RMIT’s pavilion features various stations showcasing the University’s excellence in design, technology and enterprise.
Attendees will be able to experience our brand new flight simulator, meet Baxter the robot in a virtual reality display, see our drones in action and so much more.
Former RMIT Engineering student and Australian Grand Prix Corporation CEO, Andrew Westacott, said he was extremely proud of the event’s partnership with RMIT University and the opportunity this presented to event guests.
