PhD graduates and students participating in the successful national Industry Mentoring Network in STEM (IMNIS) program are more likely to actively pursue an industry career, a recent survey has found.

The survey, conducted by the Academy of Technology and Engineering’s (ATSE’s) IMNIS initiative, found the majority of IMNIS alumni either work in industry or are actively pursuing or considering an industry career, compared to only about 30 per cent of PhD graduates not participating in the program.
