In today's highly interconnected world, information technology (IT) is crucial to the successful operations of any business and is integral to our lives. Data is increasing at an unprecedented rate, with information now at the core of modern world economics. 

This program introduces you to how IT systems can be managed and how business applications can be integrated. You will gain the design, development, implementation and management skills to effectively manage these technologies, focussing on how IT systems can support and, if used effectively, transform organizations.
Structured as a set of core courses and specializations, you will gain up-to-date knowledge in web technology and internet applications, networking, mobile applications and security, and interactive media, game programming and simulation. You will learn to use and apply current technical concepts and practices through human computer interaction, information management and programming. A practical project will enable you to apply the theory and make your mark in this ever-expanding discipline.

Developed according to the standards of international professional bodies such as the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (IEEE), the Computer Society (IEEE-CS), and the Association for Information Technology Professionals (AITP), the program ensures that you will be uniquely qualified to design, analyze, and test wide-ranging IT solutions using state-of-the-art technologies.
