Information & Communications Technology (ICT) is part of so many aspects of our daily lives and the key for much innovation, including significant health innovations like MRIs and environmental solutions like hybrid cars.
ICT covers all forms of computer and communications equipment and software used to create, design, store, transmit, interpret and manipulate information in its various formats. Personal computers, laptops, tablets, mobile phones, transport systems, televisions, and network technologies are just some examples of the diverse array of ICT tools.
Studies in ICT include many disciplines, such as mathematics, information systems, physics and design. The skills acquired in an ICT degree can be applied to everything from satellites to iPhone apps, from CT scanners to computer games.
While many people think of Information Technology when they think of ICT, Multimedia Design, Computer Systems Engineering and Software Engineering also lead to careers in ICT.
If you want to make a positive difference to the world, why wait to immerse yourself in the rewards of ICT?
