Information technology

INTEREST AREA

With a cutting-edge and booming industry, IT offers an exciting future. From software engineering to cyber security, games design and development, data analytics and virtual reality – a career in technology today will contribute to the way we work, socialise, communicate and entertain ourselves tomorrow.

Gain the experience and skills employers value

Get an edge in the job market through the combination of hands-on experience and high-level theoretical training that our IT courses provide. Learn by doing, rather than just seeing – not only will you succeed in your course, but you’ll also stand out to future employers.

Industry experience in every IT course

All IT students at Deakin have the opportunity to undertake an internship. 

This provides you with a chance to apply your learning and gain valuable industry experience that counts towards your degree, experience the professional work environment and develop professional networks before you graduate.

Earn professional recognition

Our courses are professionally accredited by the Australian Computer Society (ACS) – meaning your degree is recognised by industry, which can lead to better employment outcomes. 

You can also choose to study units at Deakin that lead to Cisco certification. This gives you a relevant, practical qualification, as well as an advantage over other graduates when you apply for jobs.

Courses relevant to industry needs

We recognise the importance of maintaining strong industry links and being closely aligned with the IT industry. 

Representatives from the likes of IBM, Telstra, ANZ and Computershare guide our curriculum and teaching programs, keeping our courses current and relevant to industry needs.

Deakin encouraged me to try new things, and not be afraid to explore areas of game design I previously ignored, or weren't even aware existed.
