Industry Engagement

DSA students benefit in many ways from 
the strong relationships that have been forged and nurtured with highly qualified and experienced industry professionals. These industry representatives not only validate the company’s training and assessment strategies, but work hand in hand with staff to ensure the quality of training and assessment sets high benchmark standards.

The industry engagement process contributes to the currency and relevance of training, the validity of the assessment process and ensures that programs exceed industry benchmarks and train students to reach an elite standard in a growing industry.
