Information Technology

Enhance the ability to process, distribute, and store data.


In the last three years, the technology industry alone has generated 33,000 new jobs in Australia.


STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) jobs are rising twice as high as other jobs in Australia.


IT remains one of Australia's highest-paying industries, with technology-related wages outpacing those in most other industries.
What is the concept of information technology?


Studying this area will help you develop skills in information processing, transmission, and storage.


You should expect to gain an understanding of information systems, programming languages, information management, and artificial intelligence, as well as the ability to use what you've learned to solve problems, by the end of your studies.


In the field of information technology, you'll study the theory and reality of industries like:

 

  • Computation theory

  • Computer programming

  • Format coding

  • Storage and retrieval of information in a computer environment

  • Robotics programming and artificial intelligence

  • Systems analysis


What are my course options?


Vocational Education and Training (VET)


VET courses provide practical, hands-on training that can prepare you for a career or lead to more undergraduate study. IT help, digital and interactive gaming, programming, coding, and systems management are all covered in information technology VET courses.

 

Undergraduate


An undergraduate degree would give you a broad understanding of all aspects of information technology. Artificial intelligence, cloud computing, data processing, mobile computing, information systems, and cyber security are only a few of the topics you can research.

 

Postgraduate/research


Postgraduate and study degrees will equip you with in-depth expertise in a particular field. In this field of research, a Master of Data Science is a common and in-demand postgraduate degree.


What does my future hold for me?


Courses in Australia are designed to assist you in making a smooth transition into your chosen profession. Australian educational institutions place a strong emphasis on assisting you in your professional and personal development so that you graduate with the necessary skills and experiences.


Information technology is a broad area, and you could succeed in it anywhere on the planet. Employers from around the world, including IMB, Intel, Microsoft, Google, and Samsung, recognise and consider an Australian information technology qualification.


Did you know that... Cloud computing is one of the most rapidly growing segments of the IT industry. Since cloud-based technology has made many Australian companies vulnerable to data breaches, there is currently a shortage of cyber security experts.
