The Industry Project is developed in conjunction with the organization identified and overseen by the academic project convener, which will determine the makeup of the project deliverables. You  are expected to treat the Industry Project in the same manner you would treat projects under commercial terms and therefore deliver to a professional industry standard.

Through the process of completing the Industry Project deliverables, you will work closely with the appropriate supervising academic project convenor, who will provide guidance and feedback for the work being undertaken. The academic project convenor will engage with the project scope prior to the commencement of the course, ensuring they have the expertise and understanding to be able to provide necessary project support.

Industry Deliverable(s) Reflection is designed to focus on the repeatable processes, approaches and methodology undertaken to achieve project success. Reflections will refer to the following documents:
