The Bayer Pilot Plant

Our nationally renowned Bayer Pilot Plant is an engineer’s playground (very few other universities in the world offer this type of facility).

It features a real-world engineering plant and equipment that is relevant to many of our engineering specialities, from instrumentation and control to industrial computer systems and more.

The plant includes advanced control systems using a modern industrial data acquisition and control platform.

The lab was launched as collaboration between Engineering at Murdoch University and industrial companies Alcoa of Australia, Honeywell, and Control and Thermal Engineering.
