As the Information Technology industry changes rapidly, the product specific skills become obsolete rather quickly. Therefore the primary focus of our computing courses is to impart fundamental knowledge and skills that will help the students build their careers by becoming life long learners.
Our courses are based on the curricula recommendations of IEEE Computer Society and ACM, the largest IT professional associations in the world. The courses are developed in consultation with an industry advisory board representing the IT industry, and are accredited by the Australian Computer Society.
