Student researchers can make valuable contributions to industry objectives, and one way that we are supporting this is by linking students with industry partners to undertake short-term research projects under industry and university guidance.
We have run the program for a previous CRC, and have seen the successful completion of hundreds of projects.
Industry partners range from start-ups, to SMEs, to the big brands. Projects are a broad spectrum of activities in keeping with the nature of the iMOVE CRC research themes. That can mean anything in the intelligent transport / mobility area – a fairly wide-ranging scope!
On the student side of the program, their projects involve researching a topic of genuine industry interest, to which they apply and demonstrate skills and knowledge to complete their university course under university supervision.
iMOVE provides additional learning experiences for students, including advice on networking, and how to present the work, culminating in an end-of-year video showcase of student project accomplishments.
