The knowledge you gain throughout your studies will lead to benefits for both you and the organisation you work for. You will critically review resources and address theoretical and practical issues in your workplace by designing and implementing projects. It is expected that the documented results of your projects will be able to be used to improve one or more aspects of your workplace.
