AUDIO: Uplifting electronic music plays.
VISUAL: Graphic on screen is AV static overlaid with the RMIT logo and HTML coding. Various shots of animations and students using VR gear.
STUDENT ONE SPEAKS:
The tech revolution has already begun, and it's the ones and zeros that are shaping the way we see and feel the world around us. Using code and sensors, we can augment our vision. In a partnership with Microsoft, we created an immersive mixed reality tour.
VISUAL: Students wear VR headsets and robotic arms.
STUDENT TWO SPEAKS: The future is about extending the mind with technology. With code, I can move a robotic arm using only the electric signals of my muscles.
VISUAL: Text on the screen reads: Shaping the Tech Revolution Through IT at RMIT.
STUDENT ONE SPEAKS: Information technology at RMIT brings together the tools and people to take on the projects of tomorrow. For our final year project, my team set out to create a mobile game. The tricky part was coding up the multiplayer link between the Android phones and the server, but that's also part of the fun, as the best way to learn is by doing.
VISUAL: Students use various pieces of technology, look through coding books and shots of mobile devices. A student presents coding ideas in a classroom setting.
STUDENT TWO SPEAKS: Coding can sometimes be the easy bit. A big part of our capstone project at RMIT was using communication tools to optimize our processes and workflow. Just like in the industry, everyone in the team has to be on the same page in order to make great software.
VISUAL: Students discuss their projects.
STUDENT THREE SPEAKS: That's the one that had the bug, so we just fixed that and everything is good.
VISUAL: A busy office floor with people working at computers.
STUDENT TWO SPEAKS: After graduating, I got a job as a technology associate at Emphasis. We focus on the latest technology, 5G network, AI, and cybersecurity. I love learning about how to help businesses navigate their digital transformation.
VISUAL: Images of students using technology at RMIT. A student is using a laptop and is experimenting with wearable technology including a headset and wristband.
STUDENT ONE SPEAKS: We wanted to challenge ourselves to create a party game that everyone could enjoy. For me, working on something you love doesn't actually feel like work at all. Software is about taking a great idea and giving it life through code.
VISUAL: Shots of white AI robots and students interacting and playing soccer.
STUDENT ONE SPEAKS: Studying at RMIT is your chance to shape this next chapter of the tech revolution.
VISUAL: RMIT logo.
