Melbourne IT Students Offer Services
Monday, 2nd May 2005 at 1:05 pm

The Department of Information Systems at the University of Melbourne is currently seeking project proposals from Melbourne-based Not for Profit organisations.

The program involves a team of students working on IT related projects for your organisation, at no charge, as part of their coursework within the final year of their degree.

In recent years, through Pro Bono Australia, the project generated an enormous response and the Department of Information Services is calling for your proposals to run in the second semester in 2005.

In the last two years around 60% of projects undertaken by student teams have been referred to the Department via the Pro Bono Australia e-Newsletter.

The Jewish Museum of Australia’s website required complete redevelopment. Mary Lou Howie, Promotions Manager at the Museum, commented on the positive outcomes of the project, and the deeper challenges involved for a “multicultural group of students grappling with ideas and concepts outside of their experience”.

Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre’s Communications Manager Anne Rahilly praised the really positive working relationship and useful outcomes of the project completed for the
their Research Division.

The project team developed a database to keep track of graduate students, which aided in tracking, recruitment, and scholarship funding.

The Asylum Seekers Resource Centre in West Melbourne’s project was to upgrade the organisations entire IT system. Tasks included updating the website, and improving accessibility and usability for users of technology at the centre.

Kon Karapanagiotidis of the ASRC says the industry project has been a huge help to the organisation in terms of providing us with an IT system that can respond to the needs of our clients.

Proposals of no longer than 150 words may be sent to Louisa Wilson in the Department of Information Services at louisaw@unimelb.edu.au. The submission deadline is 3pm Friday June 17th, 2002.

For more information on projects, and how to submit a proposal, please go to www.dis.unimelb.edu.au/projects , or email iprojects@staff.dis.unimelb.edu.au .

All other inquiries regarding projects please phone Louisa Wilson, Monday to Wednesdays on 8344 1503.
