There are plenty of good reasons why UTS is seen as a leader in information technology education and research in Australia.
Graduates industry wants
Theory is important, but the real value lies in knowing how to apply it. We’re known for our practice-oriented courses geared towards preparing graduates for careers in industry, with real experience in putting their knowledge to work in market-leading companies through our extensive internships programs.
Head into the world with a UTS Information Technology degree and potential employers automatically know you’re an adaptable problem-solver ready to make an instant and profound impact. It’s part of why 78 per cent of our bachelor’s and 84 per cent of our postgraduate coursework graduates are employed within three months of completing their studies (2014 Australian Graduate Survey).
Ahead of the pack
We might be young, but we sure are going places – and we’ve got the rankings to prove it. Thanks to our international reputation for quality teaching and research, we were awarded five-star status in all eight higher education categories by QS™ for 2014-2016, adding to a swag of other top – and rising – rankings.
Connections that count
Our industry connections are our bread and butter. We’ve nurtured great relationships with organisations across a huge array of industries and built an Industry Advisory Board (IAB) made up of senior industry representatives. Many of our academics are also practicing IT professionals and recognised industry leaders. Together, we’re continually updating our research and education programs so that our students get the skills industry most wants and needs, now and in the future.
Backed by research
When it comes to research with societal impact, UTS Engineering and Information Technology has it covered – from thought-controlled wheelchairs to big data analysis that informs cancer diagnosis, to affordable earthquake-proof housing for people living in disaster-prone regions. Our research is creative, innovative and transformative. Our teaching and learning programs are built from that exceptional foundation.
Seriously incredible facilities
If the UTS Engineering and IT Building looks like something from the future, that’s because it is. It’s a living, breathing laboratory, embedded with revolutionary technology and purpose-built to spark creativity and collaboration. Everything you need to take on tomorrow is right here, all under one roof.
Information Technology is a passport to the world, and we’re all about ensuring our graduates have the skills and opportunities to solve complex problems in far-flung places. We collaborate and share technology with other world-leading institutions, and our research and teaching is right on top of the latest developments here and abroad.
Many of our courses are accredited, professionally recognised and/or open to membership. Students can globalise their degree through one of our many international opportunities, and even do overseas internships.
