An enormously satisfying, 44 year journey as a WAIT and Curtin staff member

Ian Hill - Alumni and staff member of Curtin University

A TAFE Computing qualification wasn’t helping me gain IT-related employment in 1973, so instead I began work as an assistant technician in WAIT’s School of Electrical Engineering. However, later that year, I secured employment as a junior programmer in the WAIT Computing Centre.

This was the start of an enormously satisfying, 44 year journey as a WAIT and Curtin staff member.

WAIT and Curtin have always sought out the newer technologies that will positively impact achievement of the University’s goals. Consequently I have been exposed to wave after wave of new technologies over the years. I feel very fortunate to have ridden those waves!
