Griffith University host the Opmantek Awards

By Daniel Carter

Starting with an Open Source core, Opmantek has always believed in a community that supports each other.

This continues to this day, for more than just an open code base.

Opmantek will be proud to sponsor the Griffith Industry Project awards night for the 6th straight year. Each semester, final year Griffith University students are required to complete a project submitted by various industry sectors. They apply the knowledge they have gained throughout their Information Technology degrees. The highest achieving projects are then shortlisted for a final event, where each team will pitch their project to industry representatives, investors, founders and fellow students.

The Opmantek Prize was launched in 2013 to link Griffith ICT students to industry clients and help develop students to become industry ready upon graduation.  I may be personally biased towards this sponsorship because this is where I met Sharon Hunneybell (Opmantek GM) and started my Opmantek journey as an intern.

The awards night will be held June 29 at Griffith University, Gold Coast, Australia.
