Jessica combined business and information technology to expand her professional opportunities.
“I knew that Business and IT at UTS is popular as a combined degree. It’s broad, with lots of scope to go into different industries.
My first internship was at Westpac. It was an eye opening experience—I never had any exposure to corporate life before. I learned how to communicate in a team environment and develop my confidence. I really had to push myself out of my comfort zone.
I never did any IT subjects in high school, so when I came to uni I was worried, but the support network at UTS is very good from academics and peers.
I’m pursuing a data analytics major and we’re building a data model that can classify different types of buildings. I’m learning a lot from the course."
