What will I learn?

The Associate Degree in Applied Technologies is a new pathway to a career in two exciting high-tech fields: Cyber Security and Industry Automation. This program has been developed in response to industry demand for graduates with practical skills in these rapidly expanding areas.

Throughout the program, you’ll acquire hands-on experience with real world issues facing almost every industry today, such as automation, information security and data analysis. With its work-based, industry-led delivery and its emphasis on applied technology, the program is a world away from traditional IT degrees. The two year (full time) duration also means that you’ll graduate faster with highly relevant work-ready skills. If you’ve never considered a career in IT but love all things ‘tech’, this program could be for you.

The program is available for full-time and part-time study across all campuses in Tasmania and is delivered through a combination of online study, face-to-face classes, practical workshops and tutorials.

  • a pathway to a great career in exciting and rapidly evolving technologies
