Bachelor of Creative Intelligence and Innovation (BCII) was developed and designed in response to the need within Industry, Government and Non-Profit sectors for a different type of graduate who can innovate across disciplinary fields.
Students are required to complete two Innovation Internships in their final year of BCII. These Innovation Internships support top UTS talent to lead innovation in a rapidly changing world.
We are seeking partners who are prepared to co-create an internship experience with BCII staff and students that complements the students’ academic learning and contributes to a well-rounded final year of study. Please note: Due to social distancing policy, the below opportunities may not be available during this time. To learn more about current partner opportunities, please contact the FTDi Partnerships team FTDiPartnerships@uts.edu.au

The Faculty of Transdisciplinary Innovation (FTDi) is committed to the principles of equal opportunity and workplace inclusion; we aim to lead by example, but know this is a constant area of work in progress. Inclusion in the workplace promotes innovation, and workplace adjustments are great examples of this. Workplaces innovate to help their employees perform better all the time; standing desks, flexible hours, differently formatted materials.
During internships, there may be times when our students will need to ask for a workplace adjustment. We are happy to offer support and guidance to our partners wherever we can. The UTS Accessibility Service is the central contact point for students living with an ongoing health condition. Students may register with the service and discuss with an Accessibility Consultant (AC) their individual access requirements. Through this consultation process and with the required medical documentation, adjustments can then be recommended to the Faculty for consideration and discussion with our Industry Partners. We know some workplaces have specific staff to help with adjustments, while other workplaces have to work in a more ad hoc way, so please feel free to get in contact if you want to talk about workplace adjustments.
If you would like to share examples of practices and innovation happening in your workplace around inclusion we'd love to hear more, please get in touch (FTDiInternships@uts.edu.au).
