Are you looking for a computing and information technology (IT) degree that is recognised by prospective employers and host countries, that will give you the skills and knowledge to act on entrepreneurial ambition and the confidence to pursue research and graduate studies? If so, the University of Tasmania’s professionally accredited IT courses are perfect for you.

Both our Bachelor of Information and Communication Technology (BICT) and Master of Information Technology and Systems (MITS) degrees are accredited at the professional level with the Australian Computer Society (ACS).


Why is this accreditation important to you?

ACS accreditation is awarded to courses that meet strict academic requirements and are reflective of contemporary ICT industry practice.

Having ACS accreditation means our degrees are viewed more positively than non-accredited degrees by prospective employers and organisations, including the Department of Immigration and Border Protection. Furthermore, the ACS is a member of international bodies such as the International Professional Practice Partnership (IP3), South East Asia Regional Computer Confederation (SEARCC) and the International Federation of Information processing (IFIP). This means, for example, that graduates of our courses are recognised within the Seoul Accord countries: Canada, Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, United Kingdom, United States.

So, why not consider an IT qualification with us that is recognised not only in Australia but also internationally!


Why consider University of Tasmania for IT?
