Industry Engagement

We recognises the importance of research and industry collaboration to discovering new opportunities and solving global issues. We also believe there’s more to great graduate research students than excellent technical skills alone. That’s why we offer industry engagement opportunities designed to give you the knowledge and skills needed to work in interdisciplinary teams and create innovative solutions for industry-posed challenges.
