Industry-Engaged HDR Program

The University of Adelaide aspires to prepare its graduate researchers for diverse roles and opportunities across all sectors and build a community of future makers.

Industry engagement as part of your higher degree by research program provides unique opportunities and a strong complement to your academic studies and give you a head start in future employment opportunities.

In addition to the new Research Internships, you, together with your supervisors, are encouraged to explore opportunities that enable industry engagement spanning the duration of your HDR degree. The University is working on identifying a range of prospects, which will be advertised in the near future.

In the meantime, and at all times, you are welcome to work with your supervisor to identify your own industry-engagement opportunity.
