Bachelor of International Studies (International Business) / Bachelor of Media (Public Relations & Advertising)
Co-creation & Innovation Graduate
Current work activities and projects
I am currently part of a project that is utilising artificial intelligence to assist in the detection and monitoring of cerebral aneurysms in computed tomography scans. I work closely with partners from GE Healthcare, Macquarie University and Fujitsu Japan. I am also managing the execution of our proof of concept ‘Incubator’ project – our equivalent of 'Shark Tank'.
Highlights of the role
Fujitsu is a great place to begin a career straight out of university. We are given the flexibility to rotate around certain areas of the organisation if we wish to do so. I am aware of other graduates in my cohort who have not only rotated within their business function two to three times, but have completely moved business units all together! The Graduate Program offers customisation and flexibility, growth and development opportunities, and support and guidance from managers, mentors and buddies across all levels of the business.
It was a great honour to be invited to the annual Japanese Emperor’s birthday reception in Canberra and showcase some of Fujitsu’s initiatives to a selection of VIP guests including politicians, government officials and international ambassadors. It was exciting to showcase some of the projects that I have been part of throughout my time at Fujitsu, such as Project Sagasu, Digital Owl and augmented reality support solution.
Highlights of UNSW
I thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to learn a language and continue developing this skill during my one-year study abroad program. Like many others, I would never have had the chance to fully immerse myself in amazing countries such as Spain, if it were not for UNSW’s wide network of global partner universities. I was also able to engage in internship programs that came out of UNSW’s Michael Crouch Innovation Centre and very active societies.
Advice for current students
Start developing meaningful relationships with your professors, tutors or anyone you complete your group assignments with. They could one day provide you with valuable career opportunities, as well as make up your references for that important graduate job application! I also would highly recommend utilising resources that UNSW offer such as Careers and Employment. I attended their resume and assessment centre tips session and it was invaluable.
