Information and Communication Technologies

Information and Communications Technology (ICT) represents one of the most exciting areas of employment for new graduates, with many finding work as computing professionals in the finance, property and business services sector, as well as the primary ICT sector.

The industry has been one of the fastest-growing areas of the Australian economy. Since the internet began to open up to commercial and individual use in 1994, internet traffic and applications have grown exponentially. In the process, computers and internet communication have become essential in nearly all workplaces.

The work

The range of occupational pathways in ICT continues to expand as technology penetrates more and more aspects of daily life. Common areas of work for ICT graduates include software engineering and programming, systems analysis and administration, general ICT management, multimedia development and ICT support.
