Interdisciplinary projects

Boost your employability with our new industry project units
Enrol in an industry and community project unit to engage with major industry partners, solve real world challenges and prepare for the future.

The University of Sydney has partnered with more than 35 leading business, government and community organisations to offer real-world projects as part of the Sydney Undergraduate Experience. 

Our industry and community partners include AirBNB, ANZ Bank, Westpac, Blackmores, NSW Health, City Recital Hall, Telstra, Commonwealth Bank, and many more.

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

Why enrol in an industry project?

  • Industry and community project units are a great addition to your CV, demonstrating your practical and collaborative skills and introducing you to potential employers. By working alongside an industry partner, you'll establish valuable connections and gain real world experience. 
  • You'll work with students from across all areas of studies at the University, working together to find a solution. Cross-discipline collaboration boosts your employability and demonstrates your ability to work with people from diverse backgrounds. 
  • You'll be challenged to come up with a creative solution to problems that businesses are actually facing – not solving a question written in a textbook. You'll get a headstart in thinking about and preparing for the future of work.
This interdisciplinary experience is a key stepping stone in preparing you for the workplace and gives you an insight into what life is like beyond the doors of the University.
