Comments about Graduate Certificate of Research Commercialisation - On Campus - Melbourne - Victoria

  • Objectives
    The Graduate Certificate of Research Commercialisation is designed to provide an opportunity for Higher Degree by Research (HDR) students to gain an understanding of commercialisation issues in industry and for Masters by coursework students to extend their studies into research commercialisation. This course provides students with skills in project management, organisational behaviour and commercialisation know-how. Students will gain a range of skills useful to the practice of research commercialisation and will graduate with an understanding of organisational behaviour, leadership and of how to work effectively in teams. Students will be able to put these skills into practice during the commercialisation project unit. They will gain the skills to recognise and protect intellectual property and develop business plans for research commercialisation and will have an understanding of how to present these plans effectively to raise funds for commercialisation. The graduate of this course will be aware of all steps involved in the commercialisation of research and have had some first hand experience of this process. This Deakin course is offered in on-campus mode and is designed to promote group work and direct contact with industry to reinforce knowledge and provide more experiential learning.
  • Entry requirements
    Applicants will normally have successfully completed an approved Bachelor's level degree (or equivalent) comprising at least three years of study. Alternative admission criteria includes demonstrable professional and/or research experience.
