IT Placement

IT Placement (SIT306) is an excellent opportunity for you to experience professional practice in a real world setting, whilst receiving credit towards your degree.

The aim of this placement is to improve your employability skills including communications skills, team work, self-management and lifelong learning competencies. This benefits your resume and is a great opportunity to start developing your industry network and try out a potential career direction before you make a longer-term commitment to a career path post-graduation.

Current students: Visit the IT Placement page in the IT Course Hub (via DeakinSync course sites)

Equipment requirements


Software requirements vary across courses and units of study. Current IT students can access various software via the following resources:

MSDN Academic Alliance (MSDNAA), an initiative by Microsoft to provide students an easy and inexpensive way to access the latest Microsoft software, is available via the DreamSpark web store. For any problems with accessing the store, please contact Robert Ruge.

Desktop software is also available to students and can be accessed via the IT Help website.

(Note: Students may be charged on their internet quota if downloading software within Deakin's network.)
