About Bachelor of Information Technology

 

The recent report from Deloitte Access Economics for the Australian Computer Society, Australia’s Digital Pulse (2017) emphasises the significant need of businesses across a diverse range of sectors for Information and Communications Technology (ICT) skills. There has been a boom in the growth of Australia’s ICT workforce in recent years and strong growth in the ICT workforce is expected to continue over the coming years. The strong demand for ICT workers and skills is consistent with the significant role digital technologies will continue to play in driving Australia’s economic growth.

 

The increasing digitisation of Australian businesses’ operations across all sectors of the economy has resulted in greater integration between ICT functions and broader business operations. Kent’s newly developed Bachelor of Information Technology (BIT) is designed to help meet this future industry need.

 

Learning outcomes from the Kent BIT degree include:

  • Information strategy, Business strategy and planning and Technical strategy and planning
  • Business change implementation and Business change management
  • Systems development and User experience
  • Service design, Service transition and Service operation
  • Communication skills
  • Teamwork and self-management skills

 

This course is excellent for students who would like to broaden their Information Technology career prospects. It appeals to aspiring professionals, as the knowledge gained and skills developed and practiced are in individual and small team learning environments, equipping graduates for roles such as analyst programmer, web developer, database administrator, business analyst, systems analyst, and software and apps programmer in a business environment.
