Industry Partnership Program

Implemented in 2018, the Industry Partnership Program is a bespoke collaboration between UNSW Engineering’s student societies and industry. This program is designed to create stronger engagement with industry for our students through student-led events and activities. As a partner, your business will have exclusive invites to student-led events throughout the year including:

  • Networking events
  • Women in Engineering Mentoring Program
  • Site visits to your organisation
  • Engineering case study and design competitions

This tailored program gives industry a chance to directly engage with our bright and talented UNSW Engineering students with the goal of creating genuine recruitment opportunities. We also feature partner opportunities in our fortnightly newsletter that is sent to 10,000 Engineering students and on each student society’s Facebook page.

To join the Industry Partnership Program or to request further information, please get in touch.
