Software engineering industry collaboration

08 November 2023

At UC all our students doing a Bachelor of Engineering with Honours in Software Engineering must complete a final year research project. Sponsoring a final year project offers industry partners the opportunity to develop a project that's useful to their organisation. Find out about our software engineering industry collaboration initiatives.
