My university experience was one of the best things I passed through. I came across wonderful people and most of all an atmosphere which always welcomed me with open arms, recognised hard work and at the same time gave me a quality education. ACU was a very homely environment university, and the ratio of tutors to students is the perfect match.
ACU always provided me the room to try things in my own way from a project perspective. Tutors were very cooperative and caring in terms of delivering content. I always enjoyed the practical approach of building applications, designing and planning.
I started ACU in July 2012 and during my journey my key motivators were my tutors and family. I always had the desire and hunger for better grades. During my course work and units I made sure I always gave more than 100% and at the end of degree I received the Outstanding Student Award followed by another four awards to add to my resume.
I started to work the day after I graduated, which wouldn't have been possible without my degree. My three years learning experience has assisted me in different areas of work, such as leadership, being a team player, management and communication.
After I graduated I started to work for Accor Plus Technology as a tech member and within a couple of months I progressed to be System Admin. I then started to work as Project Manager in which I am solely responsible for planning, budgeting, implementing and also looking after post-project control. I have now also launched my own web development firm, called Space Tech AU in which I am the key Managing Partner.
To all the new upcoming students in ACU, my advice is to enjoy your time and get the most out of the university. Tutors are always there to help you, but at the same time it is necessary for the students to prepare themselves as well. ACU would be one of the finest decision you would make in terms of your degree.
Anyone taking IT should be ready to undertake more practical experience and should always be one step ahead in applying it.
