Global reputation, great teachers and support

Josh Caratelli decided to study a Bachelor of Computer Science because it's a great mix of working with people and combining technical and creative skills.

With an award-winning app already under his belt, Josh is well on his way to becoming a successful games developer.

"RMIT was a very obvious choice for me for a couple of reasons. The first being just the culture, the people here are super nice, super passionate if you have an issue or if you want to extend yourself RMIT's there for you and secondly, in my field of computer science and game development, people overseas have heard of RMIT, and that just goes a long way."

How Josh grew a small idea into a real product

One of Josh's major achievements is launching an iPhone game with his friend Liam McLaughlin. It's called Smog Game and teaches kids about saving the environment. Josh and Liam talked to Apple reps and PwC and Epic and grew their very small idea into a finished product.

Experience information technology at RMIT

The opportunities I’ve had at RMIT, to meet people and get their perspectives, have really opened my eyes to the possibilities for a career as a networking engineer, a security engineer or even in systems development.
