Industry Mentoring Opportunity for UTS PhD Students
UTS participates in the Industry Mentoring Network in STEM (IMNIS) program. IMNIS is an initiative of the Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering (ATSE).
IMNIS connects motivated, commercially aware industry mentors with PhD students (mentees). Mentors and mentees are matched for one year and commit to meeting 1 hour per month. Networking events allow mentors and mentees to connect more broadly. In 2016, the program was recognised with a prestigious B/HERT Award.
The program is prioritised for 2nd and 3rd year UTS PhD students, however 1st year PhD students and Post-Docs may also apply. An expression-of-interest will be announced each year by emailing students and supervisors. Places are limited, so selection from the EOIs will be competitive.
