We have substantial and active university-industry partnerships, focusing our teaching and research on real-world applications. As part of our commitment to maintaining these strong links, we invite companies and organisations to join our Industry Partners Program. This program helps fund our outreach programs with potential future students, in primary and high schools. This includes our very successful Primary School Maths Prize and Year 10 Engineering Work Experience Week. Funds are also used to run events that link our undergraduates with our Industry Partners.
It's important to us that high school students can see a direct path from university to the exciting and challenging world of engineering. The Industry Partners Program presents great opportunities to develop a productive relationship with the school, its staff and students.
There are a number of ways we foster connections between you and our engineering students throughout the academic year. These include:
Some of our industry partners actively invest in extending the research and uses of engineering and scientific knowledge. Several of our academic positions are currently funded through the generosity of industry partners, including:
If you’re interested in further information on funding academic positions, please contact our school office.
We acknowledge industry partners through our UNSW Civil and Environmental Engineering website, in the building foyer, on school banners and in the widely distributed Annual Report.
