RMIT Student


The Greenhouse and Sustainability Program (GSP) connects RMIT’s Honours and/or Masters students with industry in undertaking sustainability projects. The program is aimed at providing students with meaningful opportunities to apply their learning to real world sustainability challenges, gain work experience in the industry, and gain course credit while doing so.

What would I do in a project?

The GSP is seeking Honours and/or Masters students who can work with and assist industry partners in solving sustainability problems. The projects can be implemented in one or two semesters and could emphasise reducing energy, reducing waste, improving business efficiency, building sustainable practices, or other sustainability issues. For example, projects might include:

  • Investigating consumers’ behaviour in sustainability
  • Addressing the logistics of waste management
  • Addressing land use planning/management in peri-urban areas
  • Greenhouse impacts of land subdivision on agriculture
  • Improving the efficiency of electrical plants in buildings
  • Reducing and monitoring waste
  • Bio-gas utilisation derived from waste water treatment or other waste products
  • Improving energy efficiency of computer networks
  • Managing the business’s triple bottom line (financial, social and environmental risks)
  • Increasing the use of sustainable materials in manufacturing

Students in any discipline who would like to undertake a research project or a work placement with a sustainability focus are strongly encouraged to become involved in the GSP.
