Bachelor of Information Technology


Meet an achiever for the Bachelor of Information Technology

Suzanne Gately

Assistant Digital Media Manager

"A degree in Information Technology is really great because it offers a broad range of career opportunities for graduates" - Suzanne

Suzanne grew up on Central Coast of NSW and was initially attracted to UON due to its accessibility. As she researched what she wanted to study, Suzanne found only UON offered a degree with the mix of skills she was looking to develop.

Suzanne studied a Bachelor of Information Technology majoring in Digital Media and Entertainment, and enjoyed the flexibility of the degree, which gave her the freedom to forge her own path as she gained experience in a certain specialty.

Suzanne is currently working as Assistant Digital Media Manager for an international events company, and is completing further study in a Master of Digital Media.

"Don't use your electives to make the degree easier, use your electives to specialise, without my specific elective choices (inspired by the gaps in my desired skills) I wouldn't have landed the job I have now." - Suzanne Gately
