WORK WITH REAL BUSINESSES

In 2019/20 academic year, over 1500 students from across the School of Business and the School of Information Technology and Engineering participated in industry-based capstone projects.

The industry-based capstone program allowed them to work on real-world challenges with for-profit and not-for-profit companies. By working with real organisations, our students formed industry networks, gained valuable industry insights and boosted their work portfolios ready for post-graduate interviews. We’re grateful to our clients and sponsors for welcoming our students and allowing them to put their skills to the test in new environments.

Responding to COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic presented a unique set of challenges for industry experiences. Our students embraced the virtual learning experiences and were able to thrive with the support of our dedicated teaching staff and industry sponsors. We’re proud of how our staff and students brought innovation and creativity to real-world real-time challenges.

See our most recent industry projects

At MIT, we know that in the real world business units don’t work in isolation. That’s why our industry projects bring together students from across disciplines to collaborate on industry projects. Learning to communicate and meet the project goals are lifelong skills that students will take forward into their working life.

Respiration and Oxygen Detector or Analyser using IoT for Covid-19

About

In the great use of applications enabled by the IoT, smart, and connected health care is specifically crucial. The network sensors used to spot the breathing and lung function are worn or placed in the existing domain. The way of tracking health can bring a definite variation in the health care landscape. Our application we can monitor the respiration system for long term recording, management and clinical access to patient’s blood pressure and body temperature. One of the significant effects on COVID on patients is that it’s affecting the lungs, and people are suffering from low oxygen in their body than the acceptable limit. This project will help in both informing the nearest health Centre as well as providing the patient with the required oxygen using oxygen cylinders. The pandemic has the capacity to hit hard in Australia similar to what it has done in India and USA. If the situation becomes worse, Australia doesn’t have enough hospital beds to take care of the patients. This project will help monitor patients from their home if their condition is not serious. If any critical condition turns out, the service provides the automatic alarm to the close-by health Centre.

Bus tracking system for Covid-19 restrictions using IoT

About

In contrast to the past technology has made our way of life simple and pleasing. This study proposes and implements a solution for enhancing public transportation management services based on RF technology. The network consists of three modules: Bus Module, Superstation Module, and Bus-Stop Module. The microcontroller-based Bus Module mainly involve of a GSM modem and RFID Readers on the entry and exit gates. Superstation Module supplied with a microcontroller unit and GSM modems interfaced to PCs which is designed to trace and record of every bus, processes user appeal from Android mobile application about specific bus location out of Bus-Stops and updates buses location on Bus-Stop’s LCD display. Bus-Stop Module is installed at every Bus-Stop and consists of a GSM modem, RFID tags, and LCD all interfaced to a microcontroller. This module obtains bus location information coming towards that stop from the Superstation module and displays the information on an LCD. The part of the project will be helping in the hassle created due to the COVID-19 restrictions, the number of people on a bus is limited, such as the Rigid Bus has a capacity of 24 passengers instead of around 60 passengers during the normal days. Passengers are facing a lot of difficulties due to this as we don’t have enough buses available. This project will help people in tracking the limits on the buses and planning their trip accordingly.

Private Network Cyber-Security Application System

About

Every day and everywhere in the world, we experience cyber security breaches and hackings. For that, Technology Solutions is seeking to build an application that will be used to encode and decode credentials information like usernames, passwords and other highly sensitive information that may get shared by emails or multi-platform messaging application such as WhatsApp and other similar apps within company’s departments and with the clients, as a step to reduce the risk of private information leaks and to reduce the impact of any sort of cyber security attack as we all know that this kind of events has become very popular recently global wise and this application will secure these information to another level of security, and will make the hackers’ efforts much more harder to decode these shared information. The approached theory is to use the values of magnitude of every cell from any given mesh plot that falls on each single key of the device keyboard as source values to be used in the pattern to encrypt and decrypt code for all input and output data, respectively.

Commercialisation Planning for Distributed Production of Ocean Products

About

From centralized manufacture towards localized makers. The democratization of production tools has been increasing with 3D printers and desktop robotic arms. The means to manufacture are becoming smaller, cheaper, and more accessible. DitchTech provides ocean technological solutions and is looking to engage the maker movement in the production of some of this technology. The technologies for maker production are wave energy converters, morphing drones, distributed arrays, and wave tanks. The target market consists of makers who live on or near the coast. Some makers will be independent, and some will be within organisations. The business model is different from traditional manufacture so the commercialization plan will require an approach encompassing new systems.
