Why take part?

The MITI Program will help you to gain real-world work experience, whilst still at University with the support and guidance of the MITI team. You will gain invaluable exposure to relevant learning opportunities that relate specifically to your studies and beyond, while at the same time, acquiring hands-on practical experience that you won't get by just doing your degree. Enhance your employability and be prepared to jump into your chosen industry with the MITI Program.

  • TEAMWORK

    Work with students from other disciplines to deliver exceptional project outcomes

  • COMMUNICATION

    Enhance your verbal and written communication skills with a range of people

  • STAKEHOLDER MANAGEMENT

    As the leaders of your project, you'll develop critical  stakeholder management skills to ensure your host organisation and key stakeholders are kept up-to-date during every stage of your project

  • PROJECT MANAGEMENT

    You'll be responsible for delivering a project on time and in scope

Project Deliverables

At the conclusion of the MITI Program you and your team will be required to complete:

  • A  poster outlining your project's final outcomes.

Your host organisation may also request other deliverables.
