ITS Australia to Host Inaugural Careers Expo at Summit 2024


An inaugural Careers Expo offers university students the chance to dive into the dynamic intelligent transport sector by spending a day at the prestigious ITS Australia Summit, the nation’s largest annual gathering of ITS professionals.

The final day of the flagship ITS Australia Summit will transform into a bustling Careers Expo, where students from member universities will interact with a broad range of potential employers from government and industry, all actively looking to recruit the next generation of future leaders.

Across the day, students will also enjoy the opportunity to attend an exciting lineup of conference sessions, including two specially curated panel discussions showcasing ITS careers from both the employer and early career professional perspectives.

“As the peak industry body for Australia’s intelligent transport systems sector, ITS Australia is dedicated to fostering the future generation of talent, ensuring the continuous growth and advancement of the thriving ITS industry,” says Susan Harris, CEO of ITS Australia.

Continuing our commitment, the ITS Australia Careers Expo is the next step in our endeavours, building upon the establishment of the ITS Australia NextGens in 2020, our young Australian transport professionals’ network, and the introduction of our mentorship program in 2021.”

The initiative has been developed in close consultation with ITS Australia member universities and research partners – the University of Sydney, UNSW Sydney, UTS, University of Melbourne, Monash University, QUT and iMOVE Australia – with the collaboration ensuring the Careers Expo will provide information and connections that match what current students are seeking.

“The Careers Expo is an opportunity for our students to learn more about Australia’s burgeoning ITS industry, and better understand the diverse career pathways it presents,” says Distinguished Professor Fang Chen, Executive Director of the UTS Data Science Institute and ITS Australia Board Director.

We hope that students beginning their studies will be inspired by the breadth of opportunities in ITS and use the opportunity to shape their ongoing learning, while students nearing completion of their degrees will have unprecedented access to meet directly with potential employers and begin conversations about their future careers.

The Careers Expo will highlight the broad range of dynamic career pathways in ITS and the education and training potential employers seek.

ITS is a highly regarded skill set that spans traditional engineering, computer science, data analytics, urban planning, policy development, and more, offering diverse career opportunities both domestically and internationally.

The Careers Expo is supported by some of the transport industry's biggest employers, with state government transport agencies from NSW, Queensland, WA, and Victoria, as well as Transurban – one of the world’s leading toll-road operators – to be represented in Sydney, highlighting careers to students.

Additionally, more than 40 exhibiting organisations, small and large, will be represented in the Summit Exhibition precinct, featuring the products and technology that underpin current ITS deployments worldwide and showcasing future jobs to current students.

The ITS Australia Summit will take place at the International Convention Centre Sydney from 13 to 15 August 2024, under the theme ‘Safe, Sustainable and Inclusive Transport for Vibrant Communities.

The inaugural Careers Expo will be held on the final day of the ITS Australia Summit on 15 August. Find out more at the Careers Expo homepage.
