Learn in a hands-on environment and experience professional practice under authentic conditions with UQ’s industry experience programs.
The CEED Placement Program integrates industry-based training with the Bachelor of Information Technology and ICT-related majors of the Bachelor of Engineering (e.g. Software, Computer Systems) by allowing students to complete their final year thesis project in industry.
As a CEED student you will typically work on-site for three to four days per week throughout the semester. You will be co-supervised by a mentor from industry and an academic advisor at UQ. You will also receive a tax-free scholarship.

Students of the Bachelor of Information Technology and Bachelor of Multimedia Design can apply in their final year to undertake an industry placement project, equivalent in value to two standard courses, as an alternative to doing a project at the University. (A standard semester workload is four courses.) The project is completed over two semesters with local industry partners, many of whom choose to participate year after year because of the high calibre of our students. These placements have led directly to jobs for some students with employers such as Queensland Health, Technology One and Dingo Maintenance. While students are doing their industry project, they carry a lighter load of standard courses.

In addition to these programs, students can access industry placements during vacation periods or by interrupting their studies. Some examples include:
