CASE Projects available for students starting in 2020

CASE projects (formerly known as ‘Cooperative Awards in the Science and Engineering)  are research projects that involve close research collaboration between academic and non-academic partner organisations, who may be from the private, public or civil society sectors. CASE students will undertake the same core training as other DTP students, and will spend extended period(s) of time working with the research partner organisation.

The projects are listed according to stream.
