    Industry connectivity

    The Industry Impact projects form an integral part of the MIT degree programs. Students work with industry partners and gain invaluable experience by working on real industry/commerce opportunities or solutions. Throughout the projects, students are challenged and supported by MIT’s academic staff to ensure they apply the learning gained from their degree studies.

    Employability skills

    During the project, students further develop their employability skills. Students learn to present their knowledge and ideas in ways that people can readily understand. As a team, they present their best project ideas and use their persuasive skills to gain support for their initiatives. It’s all part of their skills development.

    Commercial breakthroughs

    This trimester’s event promises to be an outstanding collection of the very best of MIT’s industry projects. As a significant part of their Business, IT Networking or Telecommunications Engineering degrees (for both undergraduate and postgraduate degrees), students and lecturers will share ideas that can become tomorrow’s commercial breakthroughs.

    Interwoven studies

    For the first time, this event will comprise projects from IT Networking, Telecommunications Engineering and Business in the same space. This illustrates the interwoven nature of studying Information Technology, Telecommunications and Business at MIT. This demonstrates how MIT prepares its graduates to stand-out from the crowd and be “job-ready”.
