The ChallENG Program is a great opportunity for our academic staff to engage with highly motivated students in projects that matter. Through the Program they can connect and build robust relationships with industry partners that align with their research. It is also a pipeline for academics to mentor and guide students to continue their studies into postgraduate education.
Welcome to UNSW Engineering's ChallENG Program!
Advance your research - Vertically Integrated Projects (VIP) program
Do you want a continuous pipeline for HDR students? Do you want your research to take new and exciting directions and produce more papers?
Consider forming a Vertically Integrated Projects team!
The VIP Program aims to revolutionise undergraduate education by uniting undergraduate and postgraduate students with academics’ cutting-edge research in multidisciplinary teams.
Each VIP forms a long-term (three-plus years) team of students from second year onwards. The long-term nature of the projects provides students with the opportunity to grow as a team and makes substantial contributions to your research.
