Job Opportunity Potential

Career opportunities
IT graduates enjoy great employment prospects and go on to work in dynamic sectors at the forefront of discovery and innovation. A 2015 report commissioned by the Australian Computer Society, Australia's Digital Pulse (PDF, 2.4MB), highlights the need for 100,000 more workers in the IT sector by 2020.

IT graduates work across almost every industry and not-for-profit organisation. You could go on to work for organisations like Google, Amazon, Facebook or Apple. Your career direction will be shaped by your choice of major – if you take a double major, you’ll have broader opportunities.


The combined degree advantage: your business skills will help you move into leadership roles in IT, support you to start your own business or take your technical skills into a different work environment altogether.
