Want to get started on a career in advanced IT, or step-up your computing skills? The three-year Bachelor of Applied Information Technology is an ideal choice.

Wherever you’re at with your study or career, you gain comprehensive knowledge and applied skills in the latest technologies to take into your future IT career.

This highly applied degree course focuses on three key areas of employability – Networking, Software Development or Web Design and Development – giving you the option to specialise in the field of your choice. Or, you can opt for a broader qualification by choosing no specialisation.

Throughout the degree you continuously put into practice what you learn through hands-on, practical projects, and work with real industry clients to help solve real problems in the workplace.

Depending on your specialisation you could be building apps, websites, cloud-based services, content management systems or complex systems integrating a range of technologies. You could even be creating your own website themes and plugins or putting in place a firewall security system.

As the demand for smart, adaptable IT professionals escalates, you could take your skills and knowledge into a wide range of future careers, such as a network or security specialist, programmer, software engineer, or web designer or developer.
