Develop and implement solutions. Join the Information Technology (Software Development) program from Federation University Australia and go beyond design and coding to the broader scope of computer programming or even a speciality in project managing.   


Knowledgeable, high profile professionals are the backbone of the IT industry, and this degree gives you the opportunity to learn new programming languages, architecture, and paradigms to create new software applications.

You will complete courses in dynamic web development, data structures and algorithms, agile coding and more.   

There are also electives that enable you to add breadth or depth to your studies. 

The material covered in this degree reflects the current and future needs of practicing software developers, and your skills will be enhanced as you apply your learning in your final year project.

On completion, you can seek employment in a role where you contribute to identifying new areas of software process improvement within an organisation, or carry out a software process improvement assignment to produce measurable business benefits. 

Your communication skills will be an asset in this area, as you report on project progress, anomalies, risks and issues.

Graduates of the Information Technology (Software Development) program from Federation University Australia may also be involved in software release and post-release activities, including product launches, and implementation roles such as installation, configuration, programming/customisation, integration and data migration.
