The Sydney advantage

The University of Sydney IT Alumni Association (USITAA)

The University of Sydney IT Alumni Association (USITAA) was formed in 2008.

The School of Information Technologies (formerly the Basser Department of Computer Science) at the University of Sydney was established in 1958, the first computer science department at a university in Australia. In the past 50 years the school has helped advance IT in Australia through research and education, with over 4,000 students graduating from faculties across the university having studied IT.

USITAA was established to develop relationships between graduates and the school, and to help alumni stay in touch with the university, and with each other.

All graduates and staff of the School of Information Technologies are members of USITAA. Current students are associate members.

USITAA works with the school on a number of initiatives and activities for alumni. Some of our activities include:

  • SoIT’s News - a newsletter for alumni and students, published 3 times per year.
  • Seminars and discussion forums.
  • Annual Graduation Dinner and End Of Year Functions for staff, students and alumni.
  • University outreach activities such as Open Day.

Future plans for the association include mentoring programs and reunions.
