The new partnership will give the club access to staff from the university�s multimedia, exercise science and sports medicine departments.
In return, students studying film, TV, exercise science and physiotherapy will be offered placement opportunities with the Dockers.
Dockers chief executive Steve Rosich said the university�s involvement in the new recreation centre, combined with its expertise in exercise science and physiotherapy, made the partnership a logical decision.
�It is very much a two-way street, with significant benefits to both Curtin University and the Fremantle Dockers,� he said.
�The ability of the club to provide real-world experience for Curtin students and for our players and staff to benefit from the university�s academic expertise and research capabilities exemplifies that.�
