The program is also designed to enable inexperienced, non-ICT students to enter a career in ICT. 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 subjects that form part of the Graduate Diploma 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. This program will prepare you to undertake further studies in these two vital areas.
