Bringing talented students and industry leaders together
The Monash Industry Team Initiative (MITI) partners multidisciplinary student teams from Monash University with leading Australian and global industry partners. Students collaborate and design innovative solutions to real issues in today's business world.
Industry partners host teams of up to four students to undertake a specific project over 12 weeks from December to February. The industry partner, together with the University define the requirements for the project and the team required, ensuring that students are exposed to relevant learning opportunities throughout the duration of the experience.
Students are competitively selected from a range of fields to form a multidisciplinary team, rather than participate as single interns.
Monash University pre-screens students according to defined criteria. The industry partner then selects the final project team.
Students participating in the MITI gain invaluable exposure to relevant learning opportunities that relate specifically to their studies while at the same time, acquiring hands-on practical experience that holds them in good stead for the future.
“One of the biggest positives is to challenge our teams thinking. You bring in very energetic, talented people without biases or background in the industry and they just think differently.”
“With the MITI program it really allows us to tap into a very robust and comprehensive screening process That’s the big difference!”
“I think the quality of the students was outstanding. The exposure to new skills, new methodologies, new ways of thinking completely exceeded our expectations”
“It was extremely satisfying to see the project move from a set of aims to our final outcome”
“The MITI project is a great experience for both Monash students and business leaders on my team. The students flourish through involvement with important cross-discipline challenges while gaining real-life business experience.”
“When you bring people from different disciplines together you’ve got the potential for greater innovation in thinking and in the outcomes”
