About the University 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. A public research university located approximately 80 kilometres south of Sydney, as of 2014, Wollongong has over 37,000 students enrolled, included over 11,600 international students from 134 countries, an alumni base of over 112,000, and over 2,000 academic related staff.[5] The University has 20,145 Undergraduate students and 8,819 Postgraduate students.
