I’m Subramanya, Solutions Designer/DevOps Lead at Office of the Pro Vice Chancellor (Education), UNSW Sydney. You can find me on Twitter or Github as @svajiraya
I’ve been in IT Sector for a little over 7 years. I have worked in most areas of IT (Support, Development, Infrastructure, Security, Architecture) and now I’m managing a team specialising in Cloud Computing and Educational Intelligence at the University of New South Wales. I have a Masters in IT from UNSW specialised in Internetworking and Bachelor of Engineering from VTU India specialising in Information Science and Engineering.
I’m an Academic Staff for COMP9900 Course this semester at UNSW with over 180 students enrolled in the Course. Students in this course tackle real-world problems in Higher Education Industry and build projects as part of the final assessment. We have employed over 120 students in our department over the past 3 years to work with us as “Student as partner” where they work with University Employees and assist us with our projects bringing in their ideas and perspectives.
In my opinion this is the best thing a University can do to help students advance their career, gain valuable experience and Help the university build projects which benefits next generation of students.
