Whilst studying at RMIT, Julian Wise has participated in CSIRO’s summer scholar program and will be completing an international industry placement for the work component of his degree.
Bachelor of Software Engineering
I decided to study Software Engineering as it looked like the perfect foundation for a career in a digital world. I want to make a big impact adding to the technological progression of society.
I chose to study at RMIT as the degree looked the most practical of the software engineering degrees I researched, which will help provide me with valuable technical skills.
There are so many fascinating courses and I have especially liked learning about artificial intelligence, algorithms, and machine learning.
Previously I was accepted into CSIRO’s Summer Scholar program in Hobart where I undertook research on artificial intelligence. More recently I received a Summer Scholarship from RMIT to complete research in Machine Learning
As part of my degree there is a 10 month industry placement component. I am fortunate to have been accepted into an international placement program where I will be undertaking work experience in Israel in deep learning and computer vision.
My advice to anyone thinking of studying software is to think big, and come up with a ridiculously large vision. Even if you set the bar a little too high, everything you achieve whilst working towards the goal is yours.
