Australian Technology Network (ATN) programs

The Australian Technology Network (ATN) comprises Curtin University, Queensland University of Technology, RMIT University, the University of South Australia and the University of Technology, Sydney. These institutions are committed to forging partnerships with industry and government to deliver practical results through focused research.

The ATN e-grad school Australia (eGSA) offers nine online learning modules for HDR students, grouped into three learning pathways:

  • Advance – Critical and Creative Thinking; Global Sustainability; Practice-led Research
  • Lead – Leadership and Communication; Project Management; Developing your Career
  • Engage – Research Commercialisation; Entrepreneurship; Public Policy.

The ATN Industry Doctoral Training Centre (IDTC) connects PhD students with industry. It addresses the current critical shortage of industry-focused highly trained researchers in mathematical sciences and related disciplines.

Features of the IDTC program:

  • the PhD project will originate in industry, not academia
  • the student associated with the project may be a present employee of the industry partner
  • the program will contain coursework and professional development components, aimed at the development of technical and executive leadership skills
  • the student will spend a significant amount of time of their candidature working at the industry partner site.

Nodes of the IDTC (Mathematics and Statistics) are located in each Australian mainland state, at all of the ATN Universities.

The Curtin University node of the IDTC (Mathematics and Statistics) is located in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, within WACEIO (The Western Australian Centre for Excellence in Industrial Optimisation).
