Work-integrated learning

Your next class assignment: a real-world industry project.

Let’s get our hands dirty.

How it works

As a student, you’re itching to get hands-on experience on real-world projects. Your instructors would love to make that happen. And companies are looking for student talent to work on their projects.

Work-integrated learning pulls it all together. It matches ASU faculty with industry partners who seek support for projects they are attempting to address in the field. These faculty and industry partners develop, manage, and embed hands-on learning experiences into your course curriculum.

Student experience in applying what they’ve learned to real-world problems is a top indicator of workplace success. (Gallup)

Experiential project-based learning is a teaching method that involves students designing, developing, and constructing hands-on solutions to a problem with a company or non-profit partner. Using project-based learning, students can build upon their creative capacity by working through real-world problems. The students typically work on these projects in small teams.
