How you’ll learn

Collaborating with industry and communities is central to our teaching, learning and research. We work closely with industry partners to ensure our programs are always aligned to the current and future needs of professions, industries and organizations.

Classes include a combination of work integrated learning and lectures, seminars, tutorials, workshops, guest talks, practical, lab work or studio practice.

Your CIC experience will also be characterized by engagement with global issues and opportunities to see the world through different eyes. We encourage you to complete part of your study at one of our partner university campuses or take a work placement with one of our international industry partners.
