The program is linked to industry through the Program Advisory Committee (PAC) and through various consulting and research projects undertaken by staff. Members of the PAC provide valuable input and are a major driver for change in the program, particularly with regard to industry trends and future graduate capabilities, the use of state-of-the-art software, the introduction of specialisations and, most importantly, support for the use of WIL. WIL will be visible in each year of the program through the use of guest lecturers, visits to industry, industry projects and, where possible, student placements in industry.
