Career opportunities

Any large company has its own IT department nowadays, and the demand for computing graduates is booming.
Employment opportunities go well beyond these IT powerhouses, and many of our graduates actually end up in other industries such as in:

  • Movies and Entertainment
  • Media
  • Banking and Financial Services
  • Telecommunications
  • Health
  • Statistics
  • Education
  • Defence
  • Business
  • Government
  • Scientific research
  • General Tech companies

Each of these industries requires a huge IT infrastructure and most directly employ our graduates, while other alumni work as Consultants who are contracted out to other companies. 

By receiving a Co-op scholarship, I was able to move away from where I lived (Lake Macquarie) to study the course of my dreams at one of the best universities in the country. Being a Co-op scholar has greatly improved my university life as I was able to network with like-minded people in my degree whom I could always turn to for help in coursework and degree questions!
