About the course

What can I expect out of this qualification?

The BICT is an applied qualification that focuses on multiple aspects of the information systems cycle. The aim of the programme is to equip students with the skills to analyse, design, develop, implement and maintain information systems across a variety of industries and business types.

Through a commitment to "hands on" learning students will gain a strong grounding in the analytical, technical and theoretical concepts of computer based information systems. The BICT also emphasizes the human and organisational aspects that relate to the use of such technology including organisational management, project management and technical communication.

By covering these interrelated topics, the BICT provides a practical link between the latest computer technology and its application to today's business environment ensuring that students are well equipped to take their place in this exciting and constantly changing industry.

Although the core focus of the BICT is information systems, students may also choose an elective stream in one of three areas Software Development, Multimedia / Web Development; and Data Communications and Networking.
