The Information and Communication Technology with Science from University of Tasmania provides students with an opportunity to gain qualifications thatwill 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.

The degree produces ICT professionalswho are confident and articulate team players, and who are attuned to the needs, methods and attitudes of business and society. The BICT aims to provide ICT graduates with the skills and knowledge to take on appropriate professional positions in industry upon graduation and grow into leadership positions, achieve entrepreneurial ambition, or pursue research and graduate studies in ICT.

The Bachelor of Science (BSc) is a multi-disciplinary degree which offers both variety and flexibility in subject choice and specialisation. It provides an effective entry into employment as skills obtained by science graduates problem-solving, critical thinking, team work, specialised subject knowledge and understanding are highly sought after and valued by employers.


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


The BICT degree has been developed in consultation with the Australian Computer Society (ACS), 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 BICT-BSc will beeligible for membership of the ACS.
