IT skills are needed everywhere. Get a Bachelor of Information Technology degree and get the jobs. 

The BIT is an applied degree, so you’ll learn by doing. There is some theory to give context and depth to what you learn, but right from the start, you’ll gain the skills and practical knowledge to go straight into a job when you graduate. 

If you like computers, study IT. If you like gaming, study IT. If you want great job options with great salaries, study IT. 

IT is problem solving. Trouble shooting. Critical thinking. Creating. Designing. Building. It’s working alone or working with people. It’s getting a great job or having your own business.

Benefits of our Bachelor of Information Technology degree

Every industry, organisation and business in the world relies on computer technology. The BIT means you could become a Web Developer, Systems Administrator, Software Developer, Programmer, Business Analyst, Database Administrator or Computing Services Manager.

Small class sizes, excellent equipment and software applications, and supportive, experienced teaching staff make it the perfect learning environment to develop high-level technical abilities and a strong understanding of IT concepts. You'll develop professional communication skills to work effectively in the industry, and you'll gain essential practical experience doing an industry-based project for an external client. 

First year covers the bases of information technology but doesn’t gloss over them. Key topics come up again through the year, and you’ll address them with more depth each time as you learn more and understand more. 

For second and third year you choose a thread to focus on: 

  • Game development 
  • Software development 
  • IT Infrastructure and operations 
  • Network engineering 
  • Alternative digital platforms (hardware, IoT, etc.) 

With a BIT, you’ll know what's happening across the industry and you’ll be an expert in at least one thread and have a firm foundational understanding of the others.
