Winner of the 2017 Monash Vice-Chancellor's Award for Programs that Enhance Learning, our popular Postgraduate Industry Experience Expo is back on Thursday 20 May!

This online expo is the culmination of 12 weeks' work by our master's students, who gathered into multidisciplinary teams to deliver an IT solution for social good. Spanning information technology, cybersecurity, data science, business analysis and artificial intelligence, our students blended their skills to develop products such as apps, websites and IoT.

Time and again our students are offered job opportunities from visitors, and their work has been sought-after by organisations such as not-for-profits and social enterprises.

About the unit

In the Postgraduate Industry Experience Capstone unit, our student teams are assigned a topic based on publicly available data that would be useful to an underserved community - a problem solved, a challenge met. Based on self-driven research and their team strengths and skills, the students identify their audience, the problem and their solution. They also select their development environment..Throughout their 12 weeks, they receive guidance and support from Monash academics and industry mentors.
