The Greener Buildings program will install energy saving infrastructure to reduce utility costs and greenhouse gas emissions for the University. These infrastructure changes will help achieve a target in the University Charter (pdf, 1.8mb) to reduce greenhouse gas emission by 5% per annum. The total cost of the program is $ 2.75 million and the project should be completed in 2016.

In order to comply with the requirements of accreditation by the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Accreditation Council (ANMAC) some works were required in the existing nursing labs, this is considered 'Phase 1' of the project. Phase 2 of the project is to create a High Dependency Unit in S Building making use of some or all of the vacant rooms S201, S2012, S203 and S235. This project will provide an additional learning space for third year students.
There were 45 submissions for this programme of works of which seven were selected to proceed. These projects best fit the objectives of the refurbishment of key spaces within the Mt Helen Campus to improve the visual appeal of showcase destinations for prospective students.
This project will enable a complete transformation of the current program finder system to a market leading online course guide which will offer a truly engaging experience for prospective and current students. The new system will have a re-designed front end, browsing capabilities, improved functionality and a single master source of program information.
The new Course Finder can be found here.
This project is to implement functionality to enable a prospective student to see what credit they will receive for previous study results against a specific course, and to have the credit applied at the time of application.
The objective of the PeopleSoft Systems Upgrade (PSU) is to improve the delivered functionality of Campus Solutions by adding new features and redeveloping the existing functionality so it can be used effectively for both higher education and VET sectors.
Implementation of an application to enable a more service-centric initiation and flow of ITS service requests. The project will also direct change of internal processes to align ITS staff and processes towards best practice and greater efficiencies. Implementation of the knowledge base will create the foundation for a single point of self-service information across the university.
The professional experience / placement of students during their studies happen within a number of Faculties. Currently each Faculty has independent sources of data-gathering repositories - anything from a spreadsheet to a simple database. The implementation of a single application for all Faculties is being instigated, and delivered for use, with integration into other corporate applications.
