More and more Australians are going to university and working for technology companies, with many choosing to do so at a lower salary, according to a report by the Federation of Australian Industry.
The report said more than one-third of Australians working in the technology industry at the start of 2019 were in the top 20 per cent of their industry for salary, with a similar proportion of Australians in that group being in the bottom 20 per of their career.
The research also found that of the top 10 occupations in Australia, six are computer and information technology (C&I) occupations.
The top 10 computer and data scientists in Australia are: Andrew White, CEO of Fy, the Australian arm of Oracle, who is also the head of its business development and acquisition division.
He is ranked among the top two C&I scientists in the world, according the research.
The CEO of Oracle is Andrew White.

He has an overall salary of $6.2 million.
He made a reported $1.5 million in salary in 2018, and is one of the highest-paid executives in the industry.

But he is also a member of the board of directors for Fy Software, which provides software and services for businesses.
The software company has offices in Melbourne and Perth.
Andrew is a former chairman of the Board of Directors for IBM, a company that makes databases and other computing tools.
He also sits on the board for SAP, the multinational software company.
He received a salary of almost $3 million in 2017.
The head of IBM’s C&Is division, Joe DiVincenzo, is also in the Top 10.
The former IBM executive has an average salary of around $2.7 million, with more than $1 million in deferred compensation.
DiVinci is a member to the board and sits on Fy’s corporate board.
He was also a director of SAP until 2016.
He did not respond to a request for comment.
The C&is division also provides software to IBM.
He earned an average of about half a million dollars in compensation in 2017, according filings.
The number of graduates with bachelor degrees in IT occupations in 2018 was about 3,000.
That’s a small percentage compared to the overall number of C&IS graduates in Australia of almost 40,000, according research from the Australian Bureau of Statistics.
More Australians are working in technology occupations.
But in 2018 the percentage of IT graduates in the workforce was below half that of workers in other industries.
According to data from the National Australia University, around 4 per cent in the public sector were IT workers, compared to about 12 per cent for the private sector.
In 2018, the proportion of public sector workers in IT was less than one in three, compared with more like one in four in other occupations.
A survey of more than 20,000 IT professionals by the Australian Industry Group (AIG) found a higher percentage of graduates were in IT than in any other profession.
That was a sharp drop from the 2012 survey when 18 per cent were in engineering and 22 per cent with science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM).
About 40 per cent said they worked in software development, while the proportion working in management, finance and accounting occupations was also significantly higher.
AIG president of policy and research John Broughton said the study found more and more people were opting for the higher-paying tech occupations.
“The trend we’re seeing is that more and less people are in the C&IES sector, but they’re still working in other parts of the workforce,” Mr Broughston said.
It’s important to remember, though, that those figures are for the whole of the public service and not just the COTS workforce, according Prof Andrew Molloy from the University of Queensland. “
It seems to be a very important job, and a very good one to do, but it’s not a high-paying one.”
It’s important to remember, though, that those figures are for the whole of the public service and not just the COTS workforce, according Prof Andrew Molloy from the University of Queensland.
The public service is only one of many occupations that require a degree.
Other sectors are also needed for entry into the private and public sectors.
For example, in education and training, about 12.6 per cent are in IT.
In health, education and social services, about 11.3 per cent.
For most of the jobs in the private or public sectors, the pay is below what most people would make in an industry such as health, social care or construction.
Prof Andrew said that when considering the average salary for the top 25 IT occupations, he didn’t expect there to be an overall discrepancy.
“This is probably a reflection of the fact that we’re not looking
