Industry projects

Boost your employability and tackle real-world issues
Your learning goes beyond the classroom and into the workplace, so you can graduate with confidence in your ability to tackle real industry problems.

The University of Sydney has partnered with over 60 leading business, government and community organisations in Australia and globally to offer undergraduate students the opportunity to work on real-world projects and engage with major industry partners.

Our 2021 partners include Accenture, ANZ, Coles, EY, IBM, KPMG and Westpac.

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.

These project units can be taken intensively in February or July or as a semester-long project. In collaboration with an industry partner and academic lead, you will work in a group with other students from a range of disciplinary backgrounds and together you will research, analyse and present solutions to real-world problems set by the partner. You will then have the opportunity to present your project with your group to the industry partner.
