Industry projects

The opportunity for undergraduates to work on real business-cases in collaboration with industry partners.

This subject will provide students the opportunity to gain extended industry experience through project work. Students will engage with industry collaborators and asked to manage real concept proposals. They will work in teams to recommend potential avenues for improvement, refinement or evaluation of an existing project or concept idea that is identified or deemed of interest by the industry collaborators. In small teams students will present the results to an audience of industry specialists, clients and peers. Students will be exposed to the rigour of processes undertaken in the industry. Seminars will incorporate team building activities, business strategies, communication, time management and knowledge of organisations, workplace culture and career pathways.

Once you are successfully enrolled in the subject Industry Project (ARTS3001), in the first week of class you will be allocated a project in consideration of your interests. You may also choose to enter The Big Idea competition.
