The Monash Industry Team Initiative (MITI) is the University’s leading industry engagement program offering students from ALL faculties an invaluable opportunity to gain professional experience in a unique learning environment.
This team based initiative embeds students with leading Australian and global industry partners for 12 weeks over the summer where they are tasked with solving real-world business problems. Placed in a contemporary business environment the experience exposes students to a practical and very different way of learning.
This year students may only apply to a maximum of five projects, so it is imperative that students consider very carefully where their interests and skill sets are best suited. This is the first release of MITI projects. We will continue to post projects to the website as the weeks progress.
Eligibility to apply to the MITI Program:
Please note: Scope for MITI projects are determined by the industry partners, this includes student disciplines and whether they require students at undergraduate, Masters or PhD level.
Applications for the MITI program are welcome from penultimate and subsequent year undergraduates, Masters and PhD students who meet the following criteria:
- Be an Australian or New Zealand citizen, holder of an Australian permanent resident or permanent humanitarian visa, or an international student.
As a minimum requirement:
- Be enrolled as a full-time Monash enrolled student over December 2018 to February 2019 completing an undergraduate degree and has commenced their penultimate year of study, that is you must be currently studying in at least your second year of a three year undergraduate degree. If completing a four year undergraduate degree, then your third year is your penultimate year.
