Developing Your Career (DYC)

DYC project information

The Australian Technology Network’s “Developing Your Career” (ATN-DYC) project is a collaborative venture across the five universities that form the ATN (Curtin University, Queensland University of Technology, RMIT University, the University of South Australia and the University of Technology, Sydney).

The universities in this network share a heritage of working with industry and use that knowledge to provide postgraduate research students with the opportunity to increase their awareness of key issues that increase their employability.

The “Developing Your Career” Short Course (previously called “Maximising Your Career”), like the ATN-LEAP Program, provides the opportunity to expand your cohort of research colleagues and is dedicated to meeting the needs of research students and aims to help participants prepare for their career and empower them with skills and knowledge.

Information about the modules

Information about the Develop You Career short course is available from the ATN’s e-Grad School Developing Your Career webpage. The module covers the following topics:

  • Self assessment
  • The world of work
