Positives: Compared to other Uni's I find the delivery of the content to be not only extremely hands-on, but also to be extremely up-to-date and aligned with current industry directions. I travel 120km round trip every day solely because of how good this Uni is.
Negatives: I truly have none whatsoever, mainly due to being able to compare this with other tertiary options.
My advice to future students is: If even remotely considering this university, to not be offput by any factors such as travel and work. It is truly worth it at the end, and the Uni has a vast majority of services to help accomodate you!
I found the tutors were good
Course was changed after I finished, better options after no major
My advice to future students is: Don't go to Uni, go to Tafe
I find the course has great teaching and really good resources for students.
Also, the grading is pretty fair.
Negative aspects are high male dominance in the industry and the course can be complex at times
My advice to future students is: Treat this course like a 9-5 job
The positives are that the staff are really friendly and engaging.
They will help and treat you individually as a student and person.
The course feels up to date and relevant, good lecturers and tutors, great learning structure.
My advice to future students is: Work hard, have fun.
Poor feedback time on assignments and poor planning for assignment and testing of learnt information during the semester
My advice to future students is: Be prepared to teach yourself in all subjects
Best parts are the extra curricular activities available at Qut. The subject matter is super hands on and you learn skills to make you employable before you even begin your final year. Negatives are some of the lecturers who don't teach too well, e.g. you'd be better off watching MiT's lectures on YouTube for some subjects.
My advice to future students is: Get involved in extra curricular activities like clubs, societies and volunteer opportunities. Go on the camps offered and check out Qut global for overseas opportunities
Positives: a lot of interactive activities, good real life examples and activities that would be applied in the profession
Negatives: negative stigma around the course and people who do it
My advice to future students is: stay ahead of your coursework
Positives: Met loads of people
Negatives: The understanding was tough
My advice to future students is: Communication with the lecturer and your peers is key
Positives: The IT course at QUT provides complete package to students, from programming to business sides. We are trained to align and be a medium between technology and business. The projects are very realistic and relatable to the real world tasks. In the final year, there will be a final project called capstone, where all the knowledge and techniques learned throughout all semesters will be used in implementing a real project with real client.
Negatives: One of the things that I dislike about the course is the quality of the lectures. I sometimes feel the lecture sessions are quite useless, especially since some lecturers only read through the slides. Another negative aspect is the lack of support in terms of technological resources and knowledge in the capstone (final year project). I feel that it is really important to provide supports for the final year students on the capstone.
My advice to future students is: I would advise future students to take this course seriously, since it is one of the most demanding courses. It can get stressful and busy, especially with the assignments, but it is also fun. Another bit of advice is to not procrastinate on the assignments to get good marks (VERY IMPORTANT)
