What does a career in hi-tech look like?

Adelaide has a well-earned reputation as a national hub for hi-tech innovation and the State Government is committed to driving the city’s global reputation to new heights, investing $24 million in the sector.

Put simply, hi-tech involves using leading-edge technologies – in the fields of computing and electronics – to push the boundaries of possibility. The hi-tech industry has the power to improve access to products and services and increase efficiency – boosting health, safety and economic outcomes.

Locally, the hi-tech industry has driven change in medical and security imaging, enabled farmers to more efficiently monitor crop watering systems through new satellite technology and developed world-first 3D hologram technology with potential commercial applications spanning gaming, education, engineering, medical imaging, and so much more! A career in hi-tech is boundless, with research indicating that 2 out of 5 Australian jobs are vulnerable to digital disruption.

The hi-tech industry is reliant on a workforce with STEM and ICT skills, as well as knowledge of advanced computer science and software engineering. Many future jobs are expected to require knowledge of emerging technologies such as machine learning and artificial intelligence.
