Launch an Idea, Launch a Start-Up, Launch a Career!
TechLauncher is an ANU initiative which enables students from any discipline to develop the research and professional skills required to use technology to bring great ideas to life and have a positive impact on our society.
Alongside technical competence, these skills include communication and stakeholder management, critical thinking, design, teamwork (including multi-disciplinary, multi-cultural and distributed teamwork), time management and many other generic skills required by employers in industry and government as well as by the research community.
Students develop these skills by working within a context that is much broader than the ANU. They work closely with industry professionals, technology experts and entrepreneurs across the ACT to complete projects addressing complex problems in a variety of disciplines and industries, or to create their own start-up enterprises. It is this context and breadth of involvement that provides our students with a deeply engaged and effective learning environment.
TechLauncher is an inclusive program open to people across the university and the broader community.
- students studying any degree - be involved in a project, deliver a seminar for your peers
- staff at ANU - propose or mentor a project, deliver a seminar
- industry, government and community - propose or mentor a project, deliver a seminar
It is with the support of local industry; the local innovation sector; the ACT Government; The Canberra Innovation Network; and an ANU Linkage for Learning and Teaching Grant that we have been able to broaden the opportunities for students to engage with people and organisations across the university and external community. We thank our sponsors for their continued support.
