Interdisciplinary projects

Boost your employability with our new industry project units
Be part of the industry and community project units, and get a head-start in thinking about and responding to the future.

As part of the future of work, Sydney has taken great strides to ensure our teaching and learning experiences are best preparing graduates for the future of work.  

The University welcomes 30 leading business, government and community organisations to offer real-world projects, available for eligible students to apply for in Semester 2, 2018. The projects champion collaboration across discipline areas and provide rare opportunities to work with major industry partners on real-world problems. The projects are open to all eligible Undergraduate students who have met 72 credit points and have a spare elective.

Students will work in interdisciplinary groups throughout the semester, in collaboration with the industry partner and academic lead. Groups will present their projects to the industry partner at the end of the semester.

Enrolments for Semester 2 are now open and must close by Sunday 24 June 2018. Find out more and apply.
