DXC Technology has partnered with the University of South Australia (UniSA) to create a unique degree program where university training is integrated with a work internship directly related to studies. This gives students access technology and skills relevant to industry needs.

Fostering digital literacy and learning new skills 

UniSA is a public research university in the Australian state of South Australia. It is a founding member of the Australian Technology Network of universities and is the largest university in South Australia with approximately 32,000 students. It offers degree programs across a wide range of subjects including business, law, education, arts and social sciences, health sciences, engineering, the environment and information technology. The university’s culture of innovation is anchored around global and national links to academic, research and industry partners.

DXC Technology is engaged in numerous projects with the aim of fostering digital literacy and the learning of new skills, particularly in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).

The joint program was established to ensure a degree relevant to current industry needs, provide students with appropriate hands-on experience while completing their studies, and to create a high-quality workforce pipeline for DXC Technology.

Opportunities with high profile public and private sector customers 

“I started my 12-month internship with DXC working in the Service Delivery Excellence team consolidating and analysing data sets”, said Sarah Rich, Client Advisor, Cloud and IT Outsourcing Service Line, DXC Technology in Australia and New Zealand.

“After completing the internship, I was offered a full-time role with DXC, becoming a communication champion focused on driving regional adoption of DXC programs. Four years later, I’m now working as a client advisor on innovation programs with DXC’s Service Delivery team, responsible for maintaining critical client relationships on large and strategic DXC accounts. Since being on the internship program and working with DXC, I’ve had so many great opportunities where I’ve been involved with many high-profile and well-known public and private sector customers. I was also lucky enough to travel to India with the internship program, and later to Bratislava in Slovakia to participate in a global event. The internship was honestly the best start to my career, and I am so grateful to have been given the opportunity to complete it. It really enabled me to be workforce ready with skills that were truly relevant for IT and business”.
