What will I learn?

Businesses and governments from around the world are struggling to develop policies on emergent issues, such as including privacy, hacking and computer crime because too few people understand the social impacts of ICT.

A major in social policy provides graduates with an understanding of the underlying social issues associated with the growth of ICT and the web.

The Bachelor of Information Technology provides foundation knowledge of organisational areas in IT, including:

  • Database management
  • Programming
  • Information systems analysis and design
  • Communications and networks
  • Security
  • eBusiness
  • Project management
  • Web-based technology
  • Professional practice in IT

You will be able to choose your major in your second year after studying a common core of subjects that links our computer science, IT and information systems degrees. Find your strengths and interests as you study the fundamentals of computer science and IT: programming, problem solving, network and communications, web technology, data management, system analysis, human-computer interaction, and project management. You’ll also complete a final-year capstone team project.

You can choose to study a double degree with Engineering, Mathematics, Science, Creative Arts or Business. These programs of study will provide you with a broad experience of technology using various industry products such as Microsoft, Apple, Oracle, SAP and Cisco.
