The STEMM Precinct

Across our Callaghan campus, several projects are underway, or recently completed, to upgrade our STEMM facilities – in buildings such as EF, ES, V, C and NIER A. New buildings are also being planned. We are officially referring to this collection of facilities as the STEMM Precinct, as together they will facilitate new ways of working.

STEMM Precinct Projects include:
