What will I learn?
The BICT is a specialist degree with both a theoretical and practical focus that aims to develop technological understanding and skills that are in high demand world-wide. You'll develop knowledge and capabilities in communication, design, development and management and learn what it takes to implement and integrate ICT within an organisation. You will also complete a hands-on project that gives you real-world experience before you even start your career. You will graduate with the skills and knowledge to grow into leadership positions; the drive to act on entrepreneurial ambition; and the confidence to pursue research and graduate studies. The BICT offers core knowledge and specialist units across the complete spectrum of Computing and Information Technology. They range from non-technical areas such as the nature of information and the organisational need for ICT; to the hardware, software, network and creative technologies used to satisfy these needs; to the communication, design, development and management skills needed to create and implement ICT components. In addition, you will be provided with the organisational skills needed to work within a business environment, including working as a team and independently; developing user-centred solutions; communicating effectively; problem-solving; community and social awareness; professional conduct; and industry best practice.
You will graduate with the abilities and skills to:
analyse the local and global impact of ICT on individuals, organisations, and society;
adapt and apply techniques for acquiring, converting, transmitting, storing, managing and analysing data, information and knowledge;
select and effectively apply processes, methodologies, tools, research skills and techniques to analyse, model, develop, source, integrate and manage ICT products and services;
monitor the changing direction of ICT and evaluate and communicate the likely utility of emerging ICT to an individual or organisation;
explain and adapt appropriate ICT to support business processes and decision making to help an organisation achieve its objectives;
identify and analyse user needs and take them into consideration during the selection, creation, evaluation and administration of ICT systems;
analyse a problem, identify and define the ICT requirements, and apply knowledge of ICT principles and technical skills to develop and evaluate strengths and weaknesses of potential solutions; and
design, implement, and evaluate and ICT interface, system, process, component, or program to meet desired needs and manage the change associated with the implementation and integration.
A career in ICT gives you the ability to combine creativity and logic. You'll learn to analyse problems; identify and define computing and IT requirements; apply your technical skills and knowledge of these principles to develop multiple possible solutions; and evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of those solutions. This is a career that rewards professionals who can take initiative and work independently. It's an area that rewards multi-tasking. It can work for people who like to lead as well as those who like operating in a team environment.
