Industry & Government

The University works with government and industry on a range of initiatives that deliver positive outcomes for students, the business community and communities locally, nationally and globally.

Industry engagement

We welcome engagement in many ways including:

  • Consultation with us to help shape our program development, ensuring degrees are relevant and that our graduates possess the knowledge and personal attributes required.
  • Access to student talent and benefit from student internships and placements.
  • Access to research to solve problems and provide tailored solutions to the challenges you face.
  • Provide professional development for your staff.

For more information on engaging with us, please contact Grega Vrettis, Industry Relations Officer.

Government engagement

We engage with the Federal Government on our core research and teaching activities, the State Government across a wide range of issues, as well as with local government in the communities that we serve.

By partnering with government, we increase the impact that our students, graduates and research make.  For more information on partnering with us, please contact Rachael West, Government Relations Officer.
