What you'll learn
For example, you may choose software development or information systems, and focus on the skills involved, while a theme such as security and forensics would obviously comprise different areas of study.
This course is studied full-time over three trimesters or part-time. It requires an intensive period of study, involving lectures, tutorials, laboratory sessions and independent study. While classes for each module may account for only three or four hours a week, you'll be expected to commit at least 13 hours per week per module.
As a full-time student you'll take three modules per trimester, for the first two trimesters. This course is also available part-time, with one or two modules studied per trimester.
Whichever direction you choose, you will end the course equipped with the expertise needed to take you further in your career.
