The event starts from 9.00 am to 4.00 pm.
The university has invited industry practitioners from the accounting, engineering and IT industries to deliver talks on career prospects in each of the industry.
Swinburne Sarawak hopes that by attending the talks, parents and their university-going children will be able to make a better informed decision on the course of study to pursue.

Talks by the industry professionals will take place in the morning while Swinburne’s academic staff will have their sessions both in the morning and afternoon.
Each school of the university will have booths to provide course consultation, advise on application and the like.
Letters of offer to pursue further studies at Swinburne Sarawak will be issued to those who meet the entry requirement of the course. As such, students are requested to bring along their forecast public exam results, on the day.
Those who register for a course of study will enjoy an application fees waiver.
Students who have yet to decide on their career paths can take an aptitude test. Using the results of the test as a guide, student counsellors from the university will advice on the sort of course most suited to the student.
