Industry

Our lab endeavours to inspire industry and create frameworks and theories that are helping people create more engaging experiences with technology that matter. As teachers and trainers we want to put the tools and resources we have created into your hands. You will find the Design Resources most useful.

  • We are always happy to come into your organization and talk to you about our work, holding workshops and interactive sessions that engage your company’s staff.
  • Tell us about how you use our material to inspire your design practice
  • Use our materials in your teaching and training.

 

Prospective students

Internships/traineeships/practical work experience

If you are an overseas student and are interested in spending some time in the Exertion Games Lab for an internship/traineeship/practical work experience in order to master your skills in physical game design, we often have openings for smart young people who are driven.

These positions are usually between 3-9 months and are unpaid, as they are in an academic environment. However, we offer excellent supervision and opportunities to engage in projects that are not possible in industry. Furthermore, these positions prepare you very well for further studies such as a PhD, as you will publish papers, and therefore an academic career.

Bachelor: Major projects

If you are in the RMIT games program, you can do your major project with us. If interested, please contact us.

Prospective Honours, Masters and PhD students

We are always looking for smart people who want to do a PhD in the Exertion Games Lab. PhD students in the Exertion Games Lab will graduate with a PhD in Creative Media from RMIT.

If you are an Australian or New Zealand citizen, you will apply for a PhD position while also applying for an Australian Postgraduate Award, which covers your tuition and living expenses for 3 years, the duration of the program.

If you are an international (i.e. non-Australian) applicant, you apply anytime of the year (as you do not qualify for the Australian Postgraduate Award), but there are other scholarships available to you, either from Australia (for example IPA) or from overseas (for example Fulbright).

Before applying to the PhD program, make sure you get in contact with us first.

While these are the primary ways that you can engage with the lab, there may be other opportunities. Please email us with your specific interests.
