¿Qué aprenderé?

IT skills are needed everywhere. Get a Bachelor of Information Technology degree and get the jobs.

The BIT is an applied degree, so you’ll learn by doing. There is some theory to give context and depth to what you learn, but right from the start, you’ll gain the skills and practical knowledge to go straight into a job when you graduate.

If you like computers, study IT. If you like gaming, study IT. If you want great job options with great salaries, study IT.

IT is problem solving. Trouble shooting. Critical thinking. Creating. Designing. Building. It’s working alone or working with people. It’s getting a great job or having your own business.

Benefits of our Bachelor of Information Technology degree

Every industry, organisation and business in the world relies on computer technology. The BIT means you could become a Web Developer, Systems Administrator, Software Developer, Programmer, Business Analyst, Database Administrator or Computing Services Manager.

Small class sizes, excellent equipment and software applications, and supportive, experienced teaching staff make it the perfect learning environment to develop high-level technical abilities and a strong understanding of IT concepts. You'll develop professional communication skills to work effectively in the industry, and you'll gain essential practical experience doing an industry-based project for an external client.

First year covers the bases of information technology but doesn’t gloss over them. Key topics come up again through the year, and you’ll address them with more depth each time as you learn more and understand more.

For second and third year you choose a thread to focus on:

  • Game development
  • Software development
  • IT Infrastructure and operations
  • Network engineering
  • Alternative digital platforms (hardware, IoT, etc.)

With a BIT, you’ll know what's happening across the industry and you’ll be an expert in at least one thread and have a firm foundational understanding of the others.

You will study

The Bachelor of Information Technology degree is a broad-based programme providing an introduction to most areas of computing. Gain technical skills in programming, networking, operating systems, control technology and databases and learn about the IT environment and practice skills in business and interpersonal communication. Year one courses are compulsory and will give you a solid base for selecting specialist electives during the following years. In third year, you will undertake an industry-based project for an external client over two semesters and this will represent the culmination of your degree studies.

Further study options

This qualification is widely recognised, allowing you to apply for entry to post-graduate study in Information Technology. You will be qualified to apply for graduate teacher training programmes, leading to a career in IT secondary education.

Your workload

Most IT courses are worth 15 credits and are the equivalent of four hours contact time per week. A full-time programme will usually consist of four courses per semester. During an average week, you will be expected to undertake 16 hours of directed learning and an additional 15-20 hours of self-directed study completing assignments and reading.

If studying at our Auckland International Campus

You will be expected to spend about 38 hours per week (or 300 hours per study block) on your course work. This includes both scheduled class time and self-directed study. Some of these hours may be spent in a workplace gaining hands-on experience and developing important industry and business connections.
