Project Aims:

A MITI team now has the opportunity to be part of this initiative through the Smart Campus lens. We are looking for an innovative and creative team that can work with a number of senior stakeholders across campus and industry to explore options and design a solution that can scale and addresses how the student experience can be enhanced through better accessibility and use of study spaces eg. meeting rooms. Optimising this through the use of technologies that support smart buildings, new and innovative space utilisation and/or climate measuring systems( you may also be working with a new prototype) and using your skills and expertise to make a practical impact will be only some of the exciting areas you will be exposed to.

Monash Industry Team Initiative - MITI

Bringing talented students and industry leaders together
The Monash Industry Team Initiative (MITI) partners multidisciplinary student teams from Monash University with leading Australian and global industry partners. Students collaborate and design innovative solutions to real issues in today's business world.

Industry partners host teams of up to four students to undertake a specific project over 12 weeks from December to February. The industry partner, together with the University define the requirements for the project and the team required, ensuring that students are exposed to relevant learning opportunities throughout the duration of the experience.

Students are competitively selected from a range of fields to form a multidisciplinary team, rather than participate as single interns.

Monash University pre-screens students according to defined criteria. The industry partner then selects the final project team.

Students participating in the MITI gain invaluable exposure to relevant learning opportunities that relate specifically to their studies while at the same time, acquiring hands-on practical experience that holds them in good stead for the future.
