DSTC is committed to helping produce highly educated, industry-ready
postgraduates and supporting early career researchers.
The education program targets Honours, Masters and PhD students,
assisting an average of 40 enrolled postgraduate students annually
in topics directly aligned with DSTC’s research program.
A variety of education activities aims to involve students with
the DSTC gaining knowledge and experience in their areas of interest,
and a working knowledge of the commercialisation of research.
These activities include top-up scholarships, supervision, student
awards, seminars, vacation employment and guest lectures.
Technology Diffusion Program
The technology diffusion program includes seminars, training,
conferences and secondments and achieves high-level awareness
raising (information on new standards for example), further professional
development (training modules) and direct, hands-on transfer of
knowledge through participant secondment to DSTC. Industry-specific
training modules are expected to be developed.
