Student projects : industry collaboration

Our students appreciate real project challenges in their final year of undergraduate study and as part of their postgraduate activities. We are seeking real life questions which may be suitable for final year project students. If you think you have such a research question. We want to hear from you.

Sponsoring a project (~$2000.00) has real benefits for both the company and the student who is supervised throughout the 12 week project by academic staff with expertise relevant to the projects thrust.

Sponsorship provides tangible benefits such as :

  • working closely with students in their final year of study
  • access to the university's scientific research resources (eg publication databases, through the students research output
  • sensory and consumer sensory testing of your product developments
  • examination of physical properties of materials and evaluation of optimisation changes

Projects offer an opportunity to foster and encourage the next generation of creative and enthusiastic students; are completed  have a defined time frame (normally June to November) although opportunities exist for a further project period of November through to March in the form of a sponsored summer studentship (~$5000.00).
