Bachelor of Information Technology and Systems (Multimedia Applications major)
I chose this course because it contains a broad range of units that covered each topic that linked in with each other to provide a more comprehensive understanding of the IT fields. I also chose the multimedia major stream because I quite enjoyed animating and producing digital content which I often did as a pastime when in high school, so this course would essentially be an extension to my knowledge.
Trent also runs his own web development business – Southern Pacific Digital – while studying. He is gaining valuable work experience while completing his degree.

Damian and Adi have created an original and successful business that combines their skills in computer science with their interests in health and fitness.
Soon after graduating they created a business around an online fitness search engine that matches people to gyms and fitness centres in the area they live. Three years down the track, the two work on the business 10 hours a day. Their site, Local Fitness, now receives over six million hits a month and gyms large and small want to be involved.
We wanted to be able to give people an exact match to their needs in the least amount of time. We merged our knowledge of IT, psychology and fitness and came up with the lifestyle search. A search that may take hours is completed in 10 seconds.
Adi became interested in the area of human-computer interaction during his computer science degree.
I wanted to be part of this course because it gave me the unique opportunity to gain valuable industry experience whilst completing an internationally recognised degree.
