QUT Design Lab’s, Rafael Gomez, has helped to secure paid internships for QUT Design students at BMW’s headquarters in Munich.

QUT Creative Industries’ Executive Dean, Professor Mandy Thomas, signed a memorandum of understanding with Dr Jimmy Nassif, BMW Logistics’ Head of IT Planning Systems. The partnership will present opportunities not just for undergraduate students, but also postgraduate and future research collaborations between QUT and BMW.

“Our first ever industrial design intern placed with BMW was Dylan Sheppard, the Design Institute of Australia Queensland Graduate of the Year in 2017. He now has a lifetime contract with BMW – that’s the kind of real world experience that is life-changing.”
