iPREPWA is an ECU-led initiative to support research collaboration between the universities and industries of Western Australia. The program involves interdisciplinary teams of PhD students, from all five WA universities, working on a six week project with an industry partner during their thesis examination period. Participating industry partners include Fortescue Metals Group, Roy Hill, CITIC Pacific Mining, Department of Health, Department of Culture and the Arts and CingleVue.
ECU doctoral students have the opportunity to spend this time developing valuable workplace skills that will ultimately benefit them as they seek future employment. For more information visit the IPREPWA web site.
