área de descrição


In the post-war era of development and innovation, the then New South Wales University of Technology established a division in Wollongong to train the engineers and metallurgists of the local steel industry. That institution grew and evolved, and in 1975 legislation was passed in the Parliament of New South Wales, establishing the University of Wollongong as an independent institution.
The University of Wollongong is proud of the rich history that has developed since those first classes were held in 1951. An official Archives Policy was proclaimed by the University Council, on 1 January 1975.
