"I think the Science meets Industry Talks are a great way for students to really engage with industry and could make finding industrial training a lot easier.
Having UNSW organise these events is a much easier way to talk to interested employers and potentially gain work experience than sending out piles of resumes. It also gives us a chance to learn more about what they're looking for and whether we would be a good fit for their company in the long run.
It would be great to have more of these happen in the future."
- Siddharth Doshi, Science student
"Engaging with industry isn’t an academic theory, it is something we do – and we are always looking for new ways to do more”
- Dean Merlin Crossley.
