This course forms the second part of the professional research component of the Master of Science program in the Faculty, being first developed in MSC8003. Industry engaged project allows students to learn through engagement with industry and community partners in an authentic activity that provides a context for integrating knowledge and skills. Students will develop a project in consultation with the academic staff and engage in discussion with their supervisors throughout the course to develop innovative solutions that they can incorporate in their project work.

Students are required to demonstrate evidence of the development of professional skills and knowledge to make connections between their experiences and the theoretical perspectives and research findings published in the literature.

The exact form of evidence in submission will be guided by the supervisor and will depend on the type of activities the student undertakes with industrial engagement.
