Benefits of our industry-linked projects

Industry-linked projects allow you to graduate with the confidence and skills to tackle any project or challenge in your future workplace.

This invaluable opportunity will not only put you on the path to a successful career, you will also have the chance to:

  • participate in real, industry challenges that may include competitions, research projects or internal briefs
  • learn how to apply your knowledge to industry-based projects
  • improve your teamwork skills
  • develop your initiative and problem-solving capacity.

Our industry-linked projects are normally undertaken as a unit of study during the final year of your course and run for one or two semesters depending on your course. Industry-linked projects often take place on campus.
