Information Technology is one of the world’s fastest growing industries. We use technology on a daily basis, whether on a mobile phone, computer, or tablet. More broadly, we interface with technology directly or indirectly in most every organisation or establishment. Given how widespread and diverse our modern technology is, it is no surprise that so many career paths emerge from this area of study. Depending on the area of focus, students may study programming, cyber security, database development, systems analysis and design, software development, mobile-application development, business, digital media, and communications to name a few.
Australia is known for the quality of its scientific research and emerging tech focus. Last year, the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) ranked it at the top of its list for the most attractive places for tech companies to invest in 2018-2022. With highly transferrable skills worldwide, international students may be drawn to this field of study in Australia.
