About the course
The Bachelor of Information Technology course has recently undergone a major course review where input was received from industry partners, academic staff and past students. The course now contains a core of eight subjects, a relevant IT major (eight subjects) and the opportunity to complete a minor of four subjects in any discipline area (including IT) plus four free electives. This course will provide you with essential skills for the workplace.
