UniSA STEM is proud to showcase our strong links with industry. Our Advisory Boards are made up of senior representatives from industry, professional bodies, program and research partners and senior University staff with the expertise relevant to program specialisations. 

UniSA STEM has two Advisory Boards:

The Program Advisory Board which focuses on providing independent expert advice and guidance about relevant trends and issues pertaining to the STEM sector and makes recommendations on strategic initiatives that align with the University’s and STEM’s core business. This Board is also responsible for instituting shorter term working groups as required for specific program accreditation purposes, which will draw on industry representation outside of the formal board.

The Research / Industry Advisory Board focuses on providing expert advice and guidance on STEM and FII’s research direction and future strategic opportunities for partnership and impact.
