In the postwar 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.
UOW is proud of the rich history that has developed since those first classes were held in 1951. The University has certainly come a long way: they still train engineers and metallurgists, but they now also train artists, entrepreneurs, educators, and innovators.See more
