The Graduate Certificate in Information and Communications Technology is proposed as a pathway for non-Information and Communications Technology (ICT) graduates, with or without professional experience in the ICT field, to study ICT subjects.
Postgraduate Information Evenings
Postgraduate Information Evenings are held throughout the year, and give you the opportunity to meet academic and professional staff as well as ask questions about courses, admission and fees. These evenings give you a better understanding of course content and delivery, what to expect from postgraduate study as well as career outcomes.
Our May 2019 Postgraduate Information Evenings will be running between Monday 6 May to Thursday 9 May at our Parramatta City Campus. If you are interested in attending, please register below.
Lead the tech world
The speed of change in ICT requires everyone to update their knowledge every few years. This Graduate Certificate course provides a foundation in ICT whereby you can gain knowledge and confidence to proceed to further studies and career advancement.
The course is also designed to enable inexperienced, non-ICT students to enter a career in ICT. The choice of any four units will enable you to tailor the course according to your own individual needs and plans.
You will benefit from the University's policies on recognition of prior learning by allowing a matching of an individual's professional experience against specific units that form part of the Graduate Certificate in ICT. The University has a long history of providing well-designed degrees in ICT that are accredited at the professional level by the Australian Computer Society (ACS).
We recognise and concentrate on the vital role that computer networks, including internet and web technologies, play in all areas of life. This is reflected in our research strengths in networking and web engineering.
