Information technology

information technology

Information technology professionals create and manage business applications, websites, systems and the IT environment for organisations.

Drawing on both computer science and information systems, it involves the study of computers and the programs that run on them as well as the creation of computer systems that satisfy individual and organisational needs.

Studies often include computer languages, programming (including the study of algorithms, data structures and networks), system development and implementation and network design as well as managerial aspects like strategic planning and operational management.

We offer an exciting range of undergraduate and postgraduate and research opportunities in information technology.

Both our undergraduate and postgraduate courses are accredited by the Australian Computer Society.


At undergraduate level, we offer a four-year Bachelor of Information Technology degree program, while a five-year combined degree program with arts, science, commerce, law or medical science is also available.
