RMIT’s revamped Bachelor of Information Technology (IT) now gives students the flexibility to design their own program. You can specialise with a major or gain a breadth of knowledge across multiple areas through minors and electives.  

Foundational knowledge is built from core courses, and students have the ability to choose which specialisation they wish to study through a number of electives. Trending areas such as Cloud Technologies, Data Science and AI, amongst others, are available as minors while STEM courses will prepare you for emerging career opportunities both for today and into the future. 

Technical knowledge can also be complimented with business insights and necessary organisational skills such as project management and cross-cultural collaboration. Students are also taught important soft skills, such as English language proficiency, communication and presentation skills, so that our graduates can navigate the corporate world.
