About the course

What can I expect out of this qualification?

The aim of the BDT is to produce high quality work-ready graduates who have a sound understanding of the dynamic IT environment, both locally and internationally, that will enable them to be responsive and proactive to ongoing change in information and communication technologies in business. The BDT is an applied qualification that focuses on multiple aspects of the information systems cycle. This programme will 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 BDT also emphasises the human and organisational aspects that relate to the use of such technologies including organisational management, project management and technical communication.
On gaining employment, it is expected that students will transition seamlessly and effectively into the workplace as a consequence of having spent time throughout their study in work based projects.
By covering interrelated topics, the BDT provides a practical link between the latest computer technologies and their applications to today's business environment ensuring that students are well equipped to take their places in this exciting and constantly changing IT industry.
Although the core focus of the BDT is digital technology, students may also choose a major in one of three areas namely Networking, Software and Web Development, or Data Analytics. Graduates of the BDT will be equipped with soft skills, a solid foundation of technical knowledge and practical skill, professionalism and knowledge of the place of IT in organisations.
