James Cook University Engineering and Innovation Place


Landmark Complex for STEM Education and Innovation

James Cook University Engineering and Innovation Place


The JCU Engineering and Innovation Place (EIP) will be constructed by BESIX Watpac on the Bebegu Yumba (Townsville) campus and will bring all the STEM disciplines together in the one collaborative environment.

The four-storey, 9,400m2 EIP will be the centrepiece of an innovation hub in which undergraduate and postgraduate engineering and IT students, industry partners and researchers will converge and collaborate.

It will be located on Mount Stuart Street, adjacent to the new Student Accommodation. The Ideas Market will form part of this development and will be a central hub and meeting place bringing together students, staff and the wider community, connecting the TIC and Student Accommodation to the Central Plaza.
