Welcome to the May 2016 edition of the UTS alumni newsletter! And a special welcome to our newest alumni, with this week marking the end of our autumn graduations. Make the most of being part of the UTS alumni community and good luck with your next steps!
In this issue, we announce the ground-breaking partnership between UTS and the Australian Indigenous Education Foundation to provide scholarships for indigenous students.
UTS is once again ranked the number one young university in Australia, and you may be surprised to learn which of our courses have also risen into the top 50 in the world.
We also feature a number of UTS alumni who are making their mark in architecture and film; and we would encourage you to nominate an alumnus who has inspired you in the Annual Alumni Awards, which closes Friday 20 May.
Be sure to download the new edition of Tower Magazine, which includes interviews with our former Chancellor Vicki Sara AO and successful filmmaker Troy Lum, events and news. Interested in becoming an entrepreneur or refining your knowledge in this area? Check out the new MBAe degree with UTS Business School – you may be surprised by what it offers.
I have also just returned from hosting a number of alumni reunions in Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore. It was a pleasure to meet so many of our alumni who are achieving great things overseas, and particularly those who agreed to be panellists to share their experiences in entrepreneurship and the importance of innovation.
I hope you enjoy this edition.
