When you choose to study at the UTS Faculty of Engineering and IT you get to experience the best of both worlds – a great degree and the chance to complete internships alongside your course.
A winning formula
Degrees with internship programs open the door to new opportunities and give you insights into the world of work that you just can’t get in the classroom. Let’s take a closer look at why degrees with internships can be the building blocks for your future success.
Gain real-world experience
Internships are structured programs that give you valuable hands-on work experience. You get to see how the technical knowledge you learn at uni is applied in practice. It’s the perfect way to explore the world of work to learn more about the type of job options and career paths available to you.
Develop effective soft skills
Working in a professional environment is much more than applying what you’re learning at uni, it’s also a chance to develop your soft skills in the workplace. Skills such as teamwork, communication, time management, adaptability and problem solving are all traits that potential employers look for and can help you land a job.
Build valuable networks
An internship as part of your UTS Engineering or IT degree is a chance to make valuable connections and start building your industry network. Your internship work colleagues may become lasting contacts who let you know about potential job opportunities and act as your mentors and referees in the future.
Create a job-winning resume
Completing internship programs as part of your UTS degree means you’re able to offer something different on your resume by including your industry-relevant work experience. It’s a sure-fire way to get you noticed by potential employers when looking for that all-important first job out of uni.
