Gain career experience and boost your employability with our Industry and Community Project Units (ICPU).
Industry and Community Project Units (ICPUs) are units that provide you with the opportunity to work on authentic problems and issues set out by industry, community and government organisations.
In collaboration with a major industry partner and an academic lead, you will work in a group with other students from a range of disciplinary backgrounds. Together you will research, analyse and present solutions to real world problems set by the external partner organisation. You will then have the opportunity to engage with and learn from industry experts and present your recommendations and ideas to the industry partner.
The projects are 6 credit point units and open to all eligible undergraduate students. We encourage students who are motivated, professional, can think creatively, can solve problems and are able work with diverse groups of students to enrol in these project units.
We have partnered with more than 45 leading business, government and community organisations in Australia globally to give you the opportunity to work on real-world projects. Partners include, Accenture, ANZ, Bain & Co, Herbert Smith Freehills, NSW Health, Subaru, Qantas and many more.
You’ll have the opportunity to explore real-world topics such as the future of healthcare, the war on waste, technology and mental health, reimagining social housing, and open data disruption.
Some projects are offered as semester-long projects and some are offered as intensives, completed over four weeks during February or July.
