St Mary's College leading the way

May 2021

St Mary's College is delighted to partner with Digital Twinning Australia (DTA) on a pioneering project to introduce students to the skills required for the digital workforce of the future.

DTA is an Adelaide-based, woman-owned and operated Australian leader in applied Industry 4.0, also known as the fourth industrial revolution.  

This partnership with St Mary's College will see DTA build and operate a digital twin of the solar energy system (with live data feeds) that is on the Veritas Centre, using the 3D Model of the building obtained from Grieve Gillet Anderson, the Centre's architects.

With a focus on cost to deliver, the company's coupling of Industry 4.0 and digital twinning enables clients to uncover new revenue opportunities, optimise delivery value, and convert data into a valuable corporate asset.

The St Mary's digital twin provides DTA with an Adelaide CBD demonstration site. It also offers a unique teaching tool for teachers and students at the College, honing digital skills for future genderless STEM careers. 

During the next few months, DTA will support St Mary's College Teacher and Leader of Learning Innovation Jasmin Parasiers , and students, through an overview of the digital twin model and demo to generate project ideas that will utilise these cutting edge skills.

There are endless opportunities for other schools and organisations to engage in digital twin projects with DTA and use the St Mary's College experience as a training platform. 

For St Mary's College, the goal is to build capacities in sustainable architecture, working towards a program to pitch for and install a battery on campus, with the idea to move in time into a carbon-neutral energy space.
