Case study: Monash University

Industry Engagement Training

Since 2018, gemaker has provided a series of regular workshops to Monash graduate research students educating them on how to engage with industry. These interactive workshops provide “real world” experience and practical tools to help participants identify, engage and work with industry partners during their PhD. This prepares them for industry internships and arms them with skills for a successful career within or outside academia.
