At UTS, we’ve invested over $1.5 billion in the redevelopment of our university campus to ensure we remain an active and integral part of our precinct. We have deliberately designed a porous campus, with no walls around it, to be able to integrate with and open our spaces up to the surrounding area, community and our partners:
Our UTS Startups collaboration space, based in Building 15 on the corner of Harris and Mary Ann Streets, is open to entrepreneurship-related events eg hackathons, startup-focused meetups, roundtables and more. Inquire about the space via email@example.com.
ProtoSpace spans an impressive 900 square metres and is buried below ground in UTS Building 7. Led by the Faculty of Engineering and IT (FEIT), it’s a collaborative space that will be open to industry and external partners, as well as UTS staff, students and researchers.
UTS has invested in state-of-the-art printing machines with a broad range of functionality, which means ProtoSpace can offer new opportunities for cutting edge applications of 3D printing.
The ProtoSpace set-up allows ideas to be trialled and refined, for possible commercial manufacturing or bespoke applications across a range of industries, from medicine to manufacturing, engineering and design to architecture. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
At more than 9000sqm, UTS Tech Lab is the size of several aircraft hangers – making its location near Sydney Airport entirely appropriate.
Our laboratories and capabilities span the internet of things, robotics, mechanics, electromagnetics, 5G networks and communications, electrical power and energy, data analytics, photonics, vehicle systems, autonomous systems, acoustics, multimedia and video surveillance, and civil and structural engineering.
This new $60 million FEIT research facility aims to lead the development of new, more integrated ways of researching, providing a space for researchers to collaborate with industry partners on multidisciplinary research with real and sustained impact. Spaces are also available for contract and consultancy work, and for external partners to explore and upskill in new and developing technologies.

The UTS Data Arena is a 360-degree interactive data visualisation facility set to change the way we view and interact with data. Viewers stand in the middle of a large cylindrical screen, four metres high and ten metres in diameter while wearing Active-Shutter Glasses, which present separate left/right views to achieve a stereo-visual effect. A high performance computer graphics system drives six 3D-stereo video projectors which create a seamless HD three-dimensional panorama, against a 16-channel audio system.
It’s a powerful immersive facility which can help industry partners simplify big data. Partners can identify patterns, discover trends, and steer research, via scientific visualisation and analysis of complex data sets.
Already, the UTS Data Arena has been used to generate a 3D volumetric model of a parasite from microscope image slices, identify biological markers in childhood cancer patients, track bacteria, travel through physical structures and create unparalleled computer graphics for film, fashion and entertainment.

Deep Green BioTech Hub and Green Light
The New South Wales Deep Green Biotech Hub (DGBH), located at UTS, brings together startups, SMEs, researchers, industry, students and other stakeholders to take NSW to the forefront of algae-based biotechnology innovation in Australia. With the support of the NSW Government, the DGBH will create jobs via an incubator environment to develop algae as a cost effective and sustainable source of food, fuel, cosmetics and industrial chemicals.
The DGBH is supporting ideas, innovation and opportunities across a range of sectors and engages industry advisors to guide entrepreneurs in the commercialisation of their ideas.
DGBH is also launching Green Light, the world’s first algae biotech accelerator program, designed to support industry and entrepreneurs in developing new algae biotechnology-based products, services, and businesses. Green Light is open to all NSW-based startups and SMEs.
Contact Alexandra.Thomson@uts.edu.au to get involved.
A cutting-edge GMP Lite (Good Manufacturing Practice) facility, buried below ground in UTS’ Vicki Sara Building, will open in 2019. It is set to be an Australian first for algal-based pharmaceutical production, open to industry partners for proof-of-concept and R&D work, and will allow UTS to further leverage its algal-expertise.
