Welcome to the School of Information Technologies
Welcome to Information Technologies at Sydney. We are committed to excellence in research, teaching and consultancy.
Our research activities are strongly focussed in the areas of algorithmics and applications, enterprise computing, human centred computing and IT applications in health care. Much of our research is interdisciplinary and internationally collaborative.
Our undergraduate and postgraduate courses are accredited by the Australian Computer Society (ACS), teaching fundamental principles and practical skills in IT, and establishing the foundations for an entire career.
The School of IT has a purpose built building with state of the art facilities, maintaining its position as a key teaching and research institution.
The winners of the recent SydneyHack2016 have paired their strong technological skills with their sound social conscience to hack through a genuine social problem: the high number of pedestrian deaths on NSW roads.
