Careers in STEM
Our programs are designed with a strong professional emphasis and in partnership with industry to ensure the career relevance of our teaching. This is why our graduate employment rates are above the national average and the highest in South Australia*.
We offer a broad range of degree programs in business, education, arts, social sciences and health, as well as all areas of STEM – sciences, information technology, engineering and mathematics. Our STEM programs are located at our Mawson Lakes campus – also referred to as Technology Park – Adelaide’s ecosystem for innovation. Our proximity to innovative industry enriches our programs ensuring they are industry-aligned and focused on real-world outcomes of great significance to our community.
We offer a range of postgraduate programs in Information Technology, including Cybersecurity and Data Science as well as programs in Engineering in areas such as Telecommunications, and Autonomous Systems.
Transforming the PhD At UniSA we’re transforming the PhD to connect our students to partnered grand challenges in research. Students will utilise their research expertise and creativity to gain real world experience as they partner with end users to meet the emerging needs of industry.
Conducted in partnership with the International Space University, the Southern Hemisphere Space Studies Program (SHSSP) is a five week intensive, live-in experience open to Australian and international participants from all disciplines.
Providing key information relevant for a professional career in the space industry, it focuses on space applications, policy and services, while giving a well-rounded overview of the principles and concepts involved in space science, space systems engineering and technology, space business and management and space legal and regulatory issues.
Throughout the five weeks, participants will hear from a range of invited experts on the principles and concepts involved in disciplines ranging from space sciences to space humanities, and deep-space exploration to space applications for our home planet. They will undertake hands-on workshops and field trips, including activities in areas such as local remote sensing data, GPS field exercises, satellite ground station operations and simulated legal, policy and commercial problem solving and debate. Participants will also undertake a group space research exercise and be given the opportunity to take part in authoring a White Paper.
The Graduate Certificate is specifically designed for those students who have completed the SHSSP Executive Certificate. Holders of the Executive Certificate will receive credit upon admission to the UniSA Graduate Certificate in Space Studies. In this program, students will have the opportunity to focus upon individual research emanating from the SHSSP White Paper.
