Industry and Community Science Project A - SCPU4001

Year - 2020

Industry and Community Project Units are designed to facilitate a collaborative, inquiry-based approach to complex problem solving. During the course of the unit, you will work in interdisciplinary teams on authentic, complex problem-based projects developed with the University's external Partners and driven by industry and community needs. Your team will identify a unique aspect to address within the broader problem and you will engage in self-directed inquiry-based research with the support of your Project Supervisor. Your Project Partner will provide valuable insights into the industry as well as access to information that will assist with your investigation and provide context for your final recommendations. In addition to deepening your understanding around specific project-related issues, you will develop skills in professional reflection, collaboration and complex problem solving through evidence-based teaching approaches and workshops. By doing this unit you will develop a toolkit that will provide you with adaptivity and agility to successfully navigate diverse and dynamic graduate career paths.
