What will I learn?

Do you dream of being at the cutting edge of an ever-evolving industry? Our Bachelor of Information Technology has been designed for students with the ambition and drive to shape the way we work, socialize, communicate and entertain. Study with us and get a head start building the future.

When you choose our Bachelor of Information Technology, you’ll be able to study business electives or even combine your degree with a Bachelor of Business Administration. And, as a result, you’ll graduate with a better understanding of how you can help your organization develop the solutions to meet their technological challenges.

Let your learning help the wider community. As part of your degree you’ll complete a community engagement unit that not only builds your communication skills but also gives you the chance to work with a not-for-profit organization doing good work out in the community. With us, you’ll explore technology and find humanity.

Tap into our network of local and global industry partners when you study information technology with us. Then, when you graduate and move out into the workforce, you’ll be eligible to apply for membership with the Australian Computer Society.
