The ICT program is a distance education program and does not require any on-campus visits. Students who are successful in distance education programs typically are self-motivated, do not rely heavily on face-to-face instruction, work independently, and can remain on schedule. Students must have familiarity with and access to:
- a high-speed Internet connection,
- a sound card, 12G of RAM minimum,
- a microphone/Webcam,
- Microsoft Operating System 8.1 or newer and Office.
This program was not designed to be an engineering or engineering technology program, although there is a significant overlap with the engineering technology IET program offered by the department.
The information studies track allows students to learn how information can be created, communicated, stored, and/or transformed to benefit individuals, organizations, and society. In our information based society, teaching practical skills for analyzing, processing, managing information that will allow them to then create technology-based solutions using a user-centered approach and evaluate the roles of information in a variety of organizational settings is a valuable skill set that is currently sought by employers.
The Bachelor of Information and Communication Technology is a specialist degree covering Information Technology (IT), Computer Science (CS) and Information Systems (IS) with both a theoretical and practical focus. It develops technological understanding and skills that are in high demand world-wide, plus builds project management and other business soft-skills that make you an ICT professional.
You’ll develop knowledge and capabilities in communication, design, development and management and learn what it takes to implement and integrate ICT within an organization. You will also complete a hands-on project that gives you real-world experience and professional networking opportunities before you start your career.
You will graduate with the skills and knowledge to grow into leadership positions; the drive to act on entrepreneurial ambition; and the confidence to pursue research and graduate studies. All coursework, including lectures, assignments, and exams, is available through the online learning system. http://www.ist-ecampus.online/blended/
