What's happening in Semester 1 2023?

This semester's Special Industry Project sees us working alongside the National Museum of Australia (NMA) to redesign energy use, environmental goals and practical operation needs.

Student teams are working alongside clients and Strategy& mentors to develop a feasibility plan, risk model and financing strategy to assist the NMA’s move into a greener future. Temperature humidity and light control are paramount for some of the invaluable exhibits homed on the Acton Peninsula gallery. With the ACT Governments commitment to gas free energy by 2045, now is the time to plan and implement new, energy efficient alternative to prolong the historical, cultural and artistic value of the NMA’s collection.

Apply now to be a part of a course where you can see your work turned into action! For the planet (and your transcript)!

The following information session can be used as a guide for all upcoming application processes.
