Bachelor of Information Technology (eBusiness)


Undergraduate

Our ability to conduct business online is increasingly an essential feature of any organisation's operations. It helps us to streamline business processes and open new markets for products and services. With eBusiness tools we can better manage internal processes such as financial and administration systems, and improve external processes such as sales and marketing, supplying goods and services, electronic transactions, and developing effective customer relationships.

The Bachelor of Information Technology provides foundation knowledge of organisational areas in IT, including:

  • Database management
  • Programming
  • Information systems analysis and design
  • Communications and networks
  • Security
  • eBusiness
  • Project management
  • Web-based technology
  • Professional practice in IT

You will be able to choose your major in your second year after studying a common core of subjects that links our computer science, IT and information systems degrees. Find your strengths and interests as you study the fundamentals of computer science and IT: programming, problem solving, network and communications, web technology, data management, system analysis, human–computer interaction, and project management. You’ll also complete a final-year capstone team project.

You can also choose to study a double degree with Engineering, Mathematics, Science, Creative Arts or Business. These programs of study will provide you with a broad experience of technology using various industry products from companies such as Microsoft, Apple, Oracle, SAP and Cisco.
