This is a cooperative education scholarship program in computer information systems, developed by UTS in cooperation with a group of leading organisations. It differs from other cooperative education courses in that, during the industry-based sessions, students follow a structured program designed jointly by UTS and the employer group, including formal coursework delivered by industry. There are a limited number of places available in this course according to the number of industry sponsors each year. If selected for this course, students receive a total scholarship of around $46,500 for the duration of the course. This intensive course includes two six-month industry-based sessions with different industry sponsors. Industry sponsors are heavily involved in the curriculum design to ensure graduates are not only highly qualified but also have the knowledge and skills relevant to the needs of industry. Students normally secure graduate employment before completion of the course. Sponsors also actively recruit graduates from the course but students are not obliged to take up employment with a sponsor.
