Industry partnerships

We are committed to continued investment in our research, teaching and learning, partnerships and most importantly, our students. We work in collaboration with industry partners to help support our students' understanding of the real-world environment and be better prepared for the step from studying to employment.

"Our brands are world-wide and we must adapt to consumer markets across the globe.  We are constantly on the hunt for talented graduates who are armed with 'real-world' experiences and who have the ability to drive growth opportunities within various markets.  

We want engineering graduates who can work as part of a global community to design, integrate engineering disciplines and to manage large complex projects. We need engineers with the business skills to make profitable commercial decisions.

It is great to see La Trobe's Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) is designed to offer students the opportunity to develop the necessary skills, by drawing on diverse perspectives and disciplines to increase their workforce readiness. I have always held the belief that it is essential for tomorrow's students to gain industry experience during their degree and I strongly support La Trobe's Work Integrated Learning program."

"At Keech Australia, we design and manufacture high integrity steel castings for national and international companies across many sectors - from mining, excavation, and construction, to agriculture, rail transport and defence. We need engineers with multidisciplinary skills and the adaptability to work across a broad range of industries. 

Keech Australia has a long tradition of innovation, and it is great to see La Trobe take an innovative approach to engineering education with the new Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)."
