Facilities

The Faculty of Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences offers a host of quality teaching, learning and research facilities, including cutting-edge test chambers, labs, workshops and equipment.

Ingkarni Wardli

Ingkarni Wardli building

The Ingkarni Wardli building houses more than 11,000 m2 of world-class, purpose-built student facilities and amenities. Among these are: a café; computer labs; study areas; an exhibition space; and 24-hour, 7-days-a-week support resources.

The building’s Kaurna name means ‘place of learning or enquiry’, and recognises the University’s special relationship with the Kaurna people, the original custodians of the land on which the University’s situated.

3D prototyping lab

Our 3D prototyping lab houses ‘Big Rep’, the largest 3D printer of its kind in the southern hemisphere. Big Rep can print using a carbon-filled PLA to produce stronger parts, and students can check their projects’ progress remotely.
