Information Technology

Information technology is revolutionising the way we communicate, conduct business and relax. A degree in IT offers a wealth of career opportunities, attractive salary packages, and flexibility. Best of all, you don't need a background in science to apply for a bachelor’s degree.

Our common core units will give you a solid foundation in the key areas of computing and information technology. As you progress in your degree, you have the choice of selected units that will give you the confidence to specialise in a specific area of interest.

Industry links and internships

Our Industry-Based Learning (IBL) program commences at the campus in 2013. High-achieving undergraduates may apply for a place in the program,  which involves a scholarship and a 22-week industry placement during the third year of the degree. The placement is part of the curriculum and is formally assessed and credited towards the degree.

Students also undertake vacation employment during holiday periods. We receive a number of approaches throughout the year from employers interested in recruiting our students for internships. These opportunities are publicised to all students of the school.
