Develop the knowledge and skills that set you apart, and become highly employable in Vietnam's rapidly expanding IT and software development sector.

Information Technology experts with English language skills are in high demand, as many international companies increasingly invest in Vietnam’s booming economy and its IT-related industries.

Combining your knowledge of IT theory and practice with hands-on expertise, you will be able to develop an organisation’s technology infrastructure and support the people who use it. You will also be able to create and manage business applications, cloud storage, social media, websites, systems and environments.

You will study software design, development and testing systems and learn to problem solve, support, troubleshoot and design IT for organisations across a wide range of sectors. You will learn to apply your skills to large-scale software application developments, and you will complete a project in your final semester that simulates working with industry. You will also develop skills in project management, research and communication that will set you apart from other graduates and help you become an IT specialist, and a leader in the information technology industry.

Our comprehensive program is professionally accredited by the Australian Computer Society (ACS) - this means the quality of our program is certified by professionals, and your IT degree will be recognised internationally. ACS employment surveys consistently demonstrate that graduates from ACS accredited programs are sought after by industry, and can expect to earn a higher salary.
