Bachelor of Information Technology - BIT - 2018


Information Technology (IT) refers to anything related to computing technology, such as networking, hardware, software or the Internet.

In our information age, IT is part of our daily lives and we are increasingly dependent on it. It is a challenging and rapidly developing field, with new applications bringing daily changes to the way we conduct our lives.

If you study with us, you will get a comprehensive education in IT, starting with an understanding of the underlying principles and applications of information technology.

Throughout the course there is an emphasis on people skills and management processes. You’ll be challenged to solve problems, make decisions, strengthen your communication skills and work as part of a team.


  • Study opportunities are also provided to assist students to undertake sought-after industry training modules, including Cisco and Microsoft certifications.
  • You can specialise in a stream of your choice such as system analysis, network engineering or programming.
  • Graduates are eligible for membership at a professional level at the Australian Computer Society.
  • You can study internally at our Casuarina campus, or study online.
  • Part-time and full-time options are available with the Bachelor of IT.
  • The course is also offered in the Summer Semester.


With most large corporations having dedicated IT departments, demand for graduates is high. IT graduates forge lucrative and satisfying careers as systems analysts, website designers and developers, app developers, and, increasingly, are involved in start-ups.

Steven MilesSteven thanks his friend and CDU lecturer Barbara White, with inspiring him to study IT. “She convinced me to transfer across from my teaching degree in 2012, after which I’ve never looked back.”

“I feel that God had a big part to play in my successes in the IT field, and I look forward to see what’s in store next.”

Steven received the IT Ambassador Award, 2014 for ‘Outstanding Commitment to the promotion of Information Technology’.

While studying, Steven worked for the web design company, Captovate, as their Digital Producer. Experience in this role and his leadership skills led Steven to his current position as Web Manager for the Department of Health. - Steven Miles
