Innovation Showcase

Fostering industry collaboration and showcasing the tremendous talents of ITEE students.

The 2021 ITEE Innovation Showcase will take place on Thursday 4 November. 

The Innovation Showcase is an opportunity for Students in the School of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering to showcase their end of year projects to industry sponsors, industry guests, VIPs, the wider UQ community and fellow students.

Not only does this event allow students to celebrate the successful completion of projects months in the making, it also gives students the opportunity to interact with industry and make valuable contacts.

Since 2012, the School of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering has hosted this showcase which has exhibited student projects from the key disciplines of electrical engineering, information technology and multimedia design; with premier examples of work from the schools' studio and project courses.

Student benefits include:

  • Networking: The Showcase provides an ideal opportunity for students to network and speak directly with Industry Sponsors.
  • Industry Sponsors: Have the opportunity to pitch your project to industry partners who can give you valuable feedback on your project.
  • Prize: Submit your project and gain the opportunity to win $1000 in prize money.

Industry Sponsors will benefit by:

  • Exclusive access to our students: Have the opportunity to see unique student projects and get a head start on recruiting the best and brightest for your organisation.
  • Networking: Build mutually beneficial relationships between UQ and your industry. Find out what the next generation of ITEE students can do for your industry.
