 MAGGIE LIUZI
 Maggie Liuzi, an international student from Argentina, had
 done her homework before choosing to study at UTS.
 Before even beginning her course, she knew it would be
“industry-oriented in many ways” with academic staff who
 possess “practical work experience outside of what they teach.”
 This was exactly what Maggie was looking for in a degree.
“In my last semester, I was more in touch with machine learning
 and robotics, and Artificial Intelligence. So I kind of knew that I
 wanted to do work more on that on that aspect,” she says.
Throughout her studies, Maggie was active in the UTS
Engineering and IT Society and partook in the group’s                  “I was helping with [HELPS], which was really good. I did that
mentoring program. Through this program, she was able                   with a few different students [who initially weren’t] confident
to meet her mentor who works at Qantas and expand her                   in their language ability. I met with them quite a few times and
professional network within her field.                                  saw how they were progressing, making friends starting to like

These experiences paid off, given that she currently works as a
Software Engineer at Baaja.                                             Maggie has sage wisdom for those wanting to break into the

 Maggie also completed the UTS Accomplish Award, a year-
 long work-ready program designed to prepare students for              “In this industry, people come from so many different fields…
 securing work opportunities in their chosen industry.                  there are people who didn’t know this world existed at all.” And
                                                                        she says that that’s okay.
 In addition, Maggie enjoyed giving back to other International
 students within the UTS community. She volunteered for the            “Career-wise, it’s amazing. Every industry requires [experts in

Interaction Design
 Are you inspired by the intersection of technology, design, innovation and entrepreneurship?
 New technological developments e.g. 3D printing, drones, driverless vehicles, social robotics and augmented reality, will fuel the growth
 of the global digital economy. To meet this growth, interaction designers will be tasked with creating user-centric solutions, overseeing
 the design of every digital touch point and creating a holistic experience.
 By deeply understanding people’s practices, environments and values, you can create products which fit meaningfully into users lives.
