The Douglas Boyd Centre
Industry is reliant on great minds; people with real practical skills, knowledge and innovative ideas, entrepreneurial talents and a strong business acumen.
In 2015, Marcus Oldham announced its plans to build a state-of-the-art Learning Centre. A unique teaching facility that would provide a range of dynamic learning spaces, access to phenomenal technological capabilities and the ability to connect educators, students, graduates and business leaders from around the world.
The goal was to provide industry with a new kind of leader. A dynamic graduate equipped with 21st-century skills, experience and a global mindset.
In February 2020, The Douglas Boyd Centre was officially opened. A celebration of fundraising achievements and a new chapter in educational excellence, shared with current students, graduates, friends and supporters of the College, staff, College executives and our project Patron, Philip Myer and the extended Myer-Boyd families.
Who could have envisaged that only weeks later, the exciting year envisaged, would look starkly different as the College, along with the rest of the world, were forced to navigate their way through COVID-19.
Please take a look at how this important facility supported our student’s learning program during this unprecedented time.
