Bachelor of Information Technology

Griffith University

This program will provide students with a core of IT technical knowledge and also allow a major in Information Systems and/or Networks and Security to be undertaken. The program is flexible enough for students to gain expertise in other areas, including those outside the IT domain. The IT technical component of the program commences in Year 1 and addresses IT skills such as understanding the basics of computing technology, how to design and build web sites, computer programming, data management, software development and human computer interaction. This is followed by more advanced IT skills in Year 2 including software technologies, information security and IT services management. The courses for both majors are in Year 2 and Year 3 of the program and, for Information Systems, cover topics such as business analysis, IS architecture, business/IT alignment and project management. Networks and Security students study the design, control and management of various types of networks and applied network security. Students undertaking the Information Systems major will be prepared for International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA) certification while those taking the Networks and Security major will be ready for network certification. The Bachelor of Information Technology addresses the knowledge/skills needed by IT graduates and also allows specialisations in Information Systems and/or Networks and Security. This degree is suitable for students seeking a more generalist IT degree which will allow them to pursue a vocational career in IT with less complex abstract problem solving and programming requirements.
