This combined Economics and Information and Communication Technology degree at University of Tasmania merges the study of ICT with an economics specialisation, with an emphasis on developing analytical skills. This degree is an opportunity to gain qualifications that will provide more breadth and offer wider opportunities for employment.


The Bachelor of Economics component allows students to develop a detailed understanding of the economic issues and factors, both national and international, that determine how macro and micro economic systems are organised and how decisions are made by individuals, firms, and governments.

The Bachelor of Information and Communication Technology (BICT) component 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. 

Career outcomes

Graduates of the Economics and Information and Communication Technology degree at University of Tasmania  combined degree should expect to have the same career outcomes as identified for the Bachelor of Economics and Bachelor of ICT. Graduates of the combined degree would be particularly valuable to government and large business organisations.


The BICT degree has been developed in consultation with the Australian Computer Society (ACS), but as a new degree full accreditation can only be received after there have been some graduates. Professional level accreditation of the course will be sought. It is anticipated that graduates of the BEc-BICT will be eligible for membership of the ACS.
