CBS Trading Room Upgrade

Project overview

The purpose of this upgrade, completed in March 2021, was to ensure the CBS Trading Room remains an innovative learning and teaching, research, and industry engagement space that continues to provide access to the latest financial market software within a flexible immersive environment. This up-to-date learning environment will enhance the student experience and facilitate appropriate student collaboration and study needs.

Project features

  • Doubled room capacity to 50 persons

  • First facility on campus incorporating a Microsoft surface hub for teaching purposes
  • Dedicated entry with improved connection to Wesfarmers Court

Project benefits

The CBS Trading Room’s increased capacity enables delivery for specialist facilities within the space and accommodates the increased demand expected from a new data analytics first-year unit being delivered with up to 1000 Faculty of Business and Law students from semester 1, 2021. With new units and initiatives such as this requiring one-to-one terminal access, the updated and replaced IT equipment will improve teaching operations and provide a true finance lab experience for students.
