Business and Industry
We are pleased to welcome inquiries from industry about ways in which our teaching and research can benefit industry members, and we are always happy to discuss new partnerships with industry groups, student work placements and other ways in which we can collaborate to solve civil, structural, mining and water engineering problems, and contribute to the engineering profession.
Please browse our website to see what we are teaching and researching. Contact our Business Development Manager, Dr Michael Rumsewicz on 0417139030 or any of our staff with your ideas, suggestions or questions.
Simply add your details to the Work Experience Directory to indicate your willingness to provide opportunities for our students in their specialist fields.
There are three main reseach groups in the School. Each group is interested in working with business and industry on engineering problems or to assist companies to take advantage of their engineering strengths when positioning themselves in the market.
