The Bachelor of Information Technology is available as a single degree in the School of Information Technology, and as a combined degree with Business Information Systems.
This course provides a thorough grounding in the basic skills of computing, such as networking, IT security, multimedia, or software development. At the same time the program provides the theoretical understanding and experience necessary to enable graduates to keep abreast of this rapidly changing field.
You will not only develop a thorough knowledge of the discipline, its theoretical underpinnings and its technical skills, but also develop a body of experience, build useful systems and lead project teams. Through the study of a core set of information technology units common to all Bachelor of Information Technology degrees at Deakin University and the selection of a variety of IT major sequences and elective studies (both IT course-grouped and units from other disciplines) you can tailor your studies to your own interests and specific career aspirations.
