RMIT’s environmental students have the opportunity to visit Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam as part of their undergraduate studies through an innovative, experiential research project.
The project replicates a professional consultancy practice and allows students to apply their knowledge to an environmental issue from a range of disciplinary perspectives.
Each year, 12 undergraduate students are selected from the following programs:
- Environment (Social Science)
- Environmental Science
- Environmental Science / Environment (Social Science) double degree
- Environmental Engineering
Working in consultation with architects, site engineers and industry specialists, you will investigate development issues in and around Ho Chi Minh City. You will learn to liaise with professionals representing various fields and the importance of teamwork skills.
Involvement in this international project gives you an understanding of:
- professional interaction in a cross-cultural context
- an appreciation of working within an interdisciplinary team
- initiation into a skilled working environment.
