Overview

This Arts and Information and Communication Technology from University of Tasmania provides students with powerful communication and critical thinking skills coupled with a strong technological base. The degree provides students with an opportunity to gain qualifications that will provide more breadth and offer wider opportunities for employment.

The Bachelor of Information and Communication Technology (BICT) aims to give students the opportunity to explore a broad range of aspects of ICT, and to graduate them with knowledge and skills in a variety of key areas of ICT for a lifelong career. 

The degree offers units across the complete spectrum of ICT, ranging from non-technical areas such as the nature of information and organisational needs for ICT through the hardware, software, network and creative technologies which are used to satisfy these needs, to the communication, design, development and management skills needed to create, implement and integrate ICT components.

Career

Graduates of the BICT-BA should expect to have the same career outcomes as identified for the BA and BICT. Graduates of the combined degree would be particularly valuable to large organisations and government.
