QUEENS­LAND Univer­sity of Tech­nol­ogy (QUT) grad­u­ates will re­turn to univer­sity on July 29 for the an­nual QUT open day to talk about their own course and ca­reer ex­pe­ri­ences.

QUT’s Leanne Cain said choos­ing a univer­sity course was a big step and QUT staff, cur­rent stu­dents and grad­u­ates would all be avail­able at the open day to help with study choices.

“Any­one at­tend­ing QUT’s open day will walk away with a real un­der­stand­ing of what our univer­sity has to of­fer, in terms of qual­ity teach­ing, ex­cel­lent fa­cil­i­ties and a vi­brant stu­dent life,” she said.

“Ad­vice from our stu­dents and grad­u­ates is one of the best sources of in­for­ma­tion for Year 12s and oth­ers con­sid­er­ing univer­sity – they tell it like it is.”

Ms Cain said around 10,000 stu­dents grad­u­ated from QUT each year and go on to forge ca­reers in the real world.

“Kelvin O’Shea grad­u­ated at the end of last year and is al­ready work­ing for Bris­bane soft­ware com­pany Tanda where he de­vel­ops dig­i­tal prod­ucts that en­able busi­nesses to achieve work­force suc­cess,” she said.

“He stud­ied a dou­ble de­gree in in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy and in­ter­ac­tive and vis­ual de­sign and will be a guest at the Sci­ence and En­gi­neer­ing Fac­ulty’s in­for­ma­tion tent at the QUT open day.

“Mar­ket­ing grad­u­ate Is­abella Kalaja is also re­turn­ing to uni and will be at the QUT Busi­ness School tent to talk to prospec­tive stu­dents about her course and her new job as an an­a­lyst with Deloitte Dig­i­tal.”

All fac­ul­ties – busi­ness, cre­ative in­dus­tries, ed­u­ca­tion, health, law, and sci­ence and en­gi­neer­ing – will be rep­re­sented at the QUT open day at Gar­dens Point cam­pus from 9am to 3pm.

A free shut­tle bus will also run to Kelvin Grove cam­pus for tours of QUT’s cre­ative in­dus­tries, health and ed­u­ca­tion fa­cil­i­ties.
