Addressing Australia's skills shortage in technologies

CSIRO have estimated that Australian industry will need up to 161,000 new AI and emerging technology savvy workers by 2030.

As part of the Australian Government's Digital Economy Strategy and Artificial Intelligence Action Plan, CSIRO has been allocated funding over the next six years to deliver the Next Generation Artificial Intelligence Graduates Program and the Next Generation Emerging Technologies Graduates Program. We're working in partnership with industry and universities to grow a pipeline of home-grown, job-ready graduates to unlock the immense economic opportunity offered by artificial intelligence and emerging technologies, such as robotics, cyber security, quantum computing, blockchain and data.

Objectives

We aim to build a cohort-based, industry driven, multi-disciplinary graduate training program.

The Programs provide students a unique opportunity to collaborate with universities and subject specialists nation-wide. We train students to be prepared for the problem-based environments they will face upon entering their field.

Students will engage with peers nationally from varying fields and locations, collaborating on project-based activities led by industry professionals. Students share their individual research and contribute to a larger multi-disciplinary solution addressing real-world challenges. The Programs endeavour to equip our students with entrepreneurial thinking and skill sets that are key to boost breakthrough innovation.
