What is Industry Project?

Industry Project is an elective course offered to undergraduate students primarily in the Bachelor of Management, Bachelor of Management (Logistics & Supply Chain Management) and Bachelor of Management (Human Resource Management) however students undertaking other business degrees may be eligible to study this course. The course is equivalent to 2 x 4.5 unit electives and students should ensure that they have adequate courses available in their degree program to be able to undertake this course.

Students have three different methods of locating a suitable project/placement:

  1. Students may complete a project in their current workplace provided it is not something they have done before and provides the student with an opportunity to learn and build on their university studies.
  2. Students may complete a project within a company that they locate.
  3. The course coordinator may have access to a suitable project however it should be noted that these projects cannot be guaranteed.

It is recommended that students locate their own placements. From SP2, 2015 students will be required to find their own placement organisation. If you are unable to locate a suitable placement you should consider enrolling in BUSS 3079 (Transition to Employment A).
