You will build a solid foundation in programming, software and information technology (IT), while also studying non-IT topics that match your interests to create your own degree. You must do a minimum of 65% computer science and IT courses with the rest drawn from other discipline areas, including accounting and law, applied communication, economics, finance and marketing, entrepreneurship, logistics, management, statistics, and CISCO networking. This is a degree of choice for those who want a professional IT degree that isn't only about software and IT development, with employment opportunities as flexible and broad as the program itself. By studying a wide range of topics, both in computing and in other fields, graduates can pursue pure IT roles and roles in other areas that require IT experience, such as marketing, advertising, accounting, and health administration.
The program includes core courses in programming, database systems, software engineering, web programming and professional computing practice. In the second and third years you'll study four courses from a minor study area, which might include accounting and law, applied communication, economics, finance, marketing, entrepreneurship, logistics, management, or statistics. The remainder of your courses will be selected from IT electives, advanced IT electives and student electives.
