Labor promises $5m for U Tas at Burnie

Shadow education minister Tanya Plibersek was out committing more of Labor’s promised University Future Fund yesterday. If elected, her government will provide $5m for the University of Tasmania’s Burnie campus to train “around” 60 students, “for jobs in equipment design and manufacture.” The money would go to infrastructure to, “simulate a real manufacturing workshop.”

U Tas says the facility will serve its associate degree in equipment design and technology, and the bachelor of advanced manufacturing and design.
