In an age of increasing technological advancements the synergy between science and information technology will only become stronger.
In an age of increasing technological advancements the synergy between science and information technology will only become stronger. IT underpins virtually all areas of science and the world needs graduates who can straddle both.
In this double degree course you will acquire creative and analytical skills to use IT to advance science. This could be anything from designing a stunning visualization of scientific data, to building an app for fieldwork data collection to setting up the business IT processes to deliver a scientific product via the internet. Your combined IT and science skillset will be in high demand from industry.
This course leads to two separate degrees:
You will gain all the benefits of each degree course (see Bachelor of Information Technology/Bachelor of Science) and be fully equipped to pursue a career in either field separately or to combine the two in your chosen work.
Depending on IT major you choose, you could:
You will hone your practical skills through either an industry experience studio project, or the highly regarded IT Industry Based Learning (IBL) scholarship program, and be ready to kick-start your career delivering IT-based scientific solutions to the worldShow more
