iPREPWA (Industry and PhD Research Engagement Program, Western Australia)

Western Australian universities are looking for local Business/Industry partners to host PhD students to undertake project work under a scheme called iPREPWA (Industry and PhD Research Engagement Program, Western Australia).

iPREPWA is managed collaboratively by the five universities in WA (Curtin, ECU, Murdoch, UNDA, UWA), who have banded together to form a group called AWARE (Advanced Western Australia Research Education). The universities are currently seeking interest from industry partners to participate in the next round. The project duration is 6 weeks, and the host organisation provides a project/problem and selects a team of three suitable PhD students from a pool of applicants, who then work on the project based at the workplace. The participating PhD students will have submitted their thesis for examination and are awaiting results.
