Description

The Postgraduate Certificate in Information Technology is intended for those with a previous undergraduate qualification in IT, such as computing, computer science or a technical information technology field, to consolidate their skills and complement their prior studies of information technology with studies at a graduate level.

Seven specialisations are offered (although not all specialisations may be offered in any one year).

Objectives

  • consolidate students' skills in the disciplinary areas that underpin the information technology field
