Behind every success story sits a great mentor. At UTS, those mentors are our amazing academics, from senior professors through to studio leaders. We choose our academics for many reasons. They are invariably at the top of their game, whatever their area of expertise. But they're also passionate about what they do and committed to nurturing their talented students (that's you).
They're connected to industry, looking to challenge you with amazing project briefs. They will push you in ways you didn't think possible and help you excel in all the ways that matter. We're immensely proud of what our students achieve at UTS. But those students also recognise the value of academic leadership. Find out how they can help you achieve your potential.
Prototyping new spaces in interior architecture
Studio leader Monika Proepper in the Bachelor of Design in Interior Architecture (formerly Interior & Spatial Design) challenged students with a unique project: build a prototype for a community engagement space for the Asylum Seekers Centre in Newtown. The twist? It's a bus, designed to service clients across Sydney.
Lighting up Vivid Sydney
Thanks to the passion of academics like Animation leader Deborah Szapiro, works by UTS students are now a regular fixture at Vivid Sydney. Deborah has led many student teams, the latest being a large-scale projection on the Australian Maritime Museum in 2017. But every year other UTS teams are lighting up the place too.
Showcasing students to industry
Associate Professor Julie Jupp is an expert in Building Information Management systems and works closely with industry on research projects. That's great news for her Construction Project Management students who recently got to showcase their work at Skills Sync. 2nd and 4th year students got to profile their 3D model coordination and 4D construction simulation outputs to enthusiastic industry partners like Richard Crookes Construction, BuildCorp, CAD Group, FJMT Architects, and Hansen Yuncken.
