News and events

We were fortunate to have an industry expert on campus yesterday speaking to our Bachelor of Information Technology and Graduate Diploma in Information Technology students for a special OPAIC Talks event.

Our guest, Aditya Patil, has an impressive IT background. He gained a diploma in software development at age seven, and holds two Guinness World Records.

At age 18, Aditya worked with the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) under the mentorship of Indian aerospace scientist and president Abdul Kalam.

He now works as Practice Director – Cloud Adoption at consulting and services company Duco.

Aditya took students through the keys to success in IT, which include communication, collaboration and confidence. He also talked about career pathways in the industry and answered questions from students and staff.
