Originally a teachers college, our 半岛 campus was previously known as the State College at Frankston. Following talks with ·考尔菲德 Institute of Technology in the early 1980s, the college then became the Frankston campus of the newly-formed Chisholm Institute of Technology in 1982. 1990年7月1日, both the 半岛 and ·考尔菲德 campuses of the Chisholm Institute amalgamated with ag九游会官网登录.
