Information Technology is a big part of our lives. We use technologies such as computers, smartphones and tablets every day. More importantly, information and communications technologies are central to the operation of organisations in many different industries.
Information technology is a growing field that offers relatively secure positions for those with solid technical skills and at least a bachelor's degree in an IT-related field. From support to engineering, there are several specializations that deal with the various facets of information technology.
This means that graduates of computing and information technology courses are very valuable and can take many different career paths.
There are many examples of world recognised brands taking advantage of what Australia has to offer in ICT. Global names such as Avaya, Canon and IBM have built product development (R&D) facilities in Australia; Google Maps and Warner Bros have used their bases in Australia to develop profitable international digital content for business and entertainment sectors; Alcatel-Lucent, Cisco Systems and CSC run advanced technical assistance centres for operations around the world from Australia; and Logica CMG, Reuters and Infosys have made Australia central to their global risk reduction strategies. In addition to all this companies such as IBM, Canon, Citrix, EDS, Fujitsu, Google and NEC have built major software development facilities in Australia.
Many international students enrol in computing and information technology degrees each year. The Australian information and communications technology (ICT) industry is growing, which means that new courses and specialisations are constantly being created.
Australia’s digital economy is growing, so the demand for computing and information technology graduates is expected to stay strong for years to come.
Graduates are employed in many different roles across all sorts of industries, from information technology firms to other organisations that require information technology expertise. Some graduates find work in information technology support roles in various types of workplaces. Others may find themselves working in more creative roles such as designing websites or games. Other roles include testing, networking and software or systems development. Some graduates apply their information technology skills in sales roles or as act as consultants to the industry. It’s possible to work outside of the industry too, perhaps using your knowledge for a technical writing role or to teach information technology skills to others.
In Australia graduates of undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in computer science and information and communications technology (ICT) may be eligible to undertake a Professional Year Program (PYP) through the Australian Computer Society (ACS). This is a 44 week program that assists international students to obtain work experience and workplace skills at the conclusion of their Australian study program. Graduates who successfully complete a PYP may be awarded five points under the Skilled Occupation List (SOL), which may assist them to gain permanent residency in Australia.
