A new world of work needs a new way of learning. Education is changing and Wintec is changing with it, so our students can find success in a world that’s moving faster than ever before. At Wintec we nurture and guide individual students as part of a community so they are confident and equipped to navigate their way in the future world of new jobs and ways of working. To do this, we must be responsive, celebrate and encourage connectivity, creativity and collaboration, and be open to new ways of doing things.
Industry Partners Industry partners working with the Design Factory team will tap into a pool of carefully selected and motivated students who will be supported and guided to come up with innovative and holistic solutions to challenges set by you. You will be partnered with a group of interdisciplinary students with a wide range of skills and knowledge who are suited to your project. These students will use strategies such as design thinking, prototyping and user testing to develop a proof of concept solution for your business. You will own the IP and can continue the idea through to implementation. We invite our industry partners to adopt an open co-creation mind-set through this process. It will be fun, challenging and provide your business with fresh solutions for industry-driven real-world projects.
You can use this opportunity to solve specific and existing needs of your company beyond normal business resources, or utilise fresh thinking to approach complex and wider issues. Involvement with the Design Factory will provide you with critical strategic insight, moving you to the forefront of industry and gaining you greater competitive advantage.
