The BiG Day In IT events are aimed at Senior Secondary School and University students interested in careers in ICT and technology, helping students obtain more information about ICT and technology careers, and hopefully helping them make a better-informed decision about their future. The events are held on University campuses around Australia (where possible) to give students an insight into what “university life” might look like.
On Tuesday 7 May, 35 Newman College students listened to 7-8 presentations throughout the day from organisations / speakers talking about subjects including career paths, career opportunities, the latest developments, the future of technology and much more. Presenters include Wisetech Global Ltd, Adobe, IBM, Microsoft, Westpac, Google, NAB, CSIRO, Technology One, ANZ Bank, Department of Human Services, CBA, Animal Logic, Apple and a host of SME organisations to name just a few.
In the morning tea and lunch breaks, our students visited the exhibitor stands to speak to exhibiting organisations, Universities and Colleges to learn about tertiary courses and degrees, work experience, internships, apprenticeships and to see demonstrations of some awesome technology in action!
