Swinburne University of Technology is launching a new Bachelor of Sport and Exercise Science, working with the Richmond Football Club.

As part of the degree, students will be immersed in the world of sports science with access to state-of-the-art facilities, high-tech teaching tools and professional placement opportunities, says course director, Associate Professor Amanda Benson.

In May, Swinburne inked a four-year partnership agreement with Richmond Football Club for collaborations in research, industry placements and to provide access to specialist facilities for students.

Swinburne and Richmond Football Club initially teamed up last year to establish the Richmond Institute of Sports Leadership, where Swinburne students are enrolled in a Diploma of Sports Development/Diploma of Leadership and Management.

• Melbourne-based Swinburne is developing a health precinct where the new degree and other health subjects will be taught from 2018.

“Students will be immersed in the latest virtual and augmented reality technology to learn anatomy and other sport and exercise specific skills, plus smart wearable and sensor technology,” says Associate Professor Benson.
