Information and communication technology – or ICT – is at the forefront of the ongoing digital revolution. And innovation, when applied as a field of study, gives you the ability to dial up your potential to effect meaningful change in the ICT field, as well as broader society.

Our highly flexible ICT course provides you with excellent skills, knowledge and hands-on experience in software technology, network technology and information technology. You’ll also work in multi-disciplinary electives chosen from schools across the university. It all leads to a final year semester project and an optional industry-based learning year.

Continuing an interdisciplinary approach to learning, the Bachelor of Applied Innovation develops your collaboration, creativity and complex problem-solving skills in real-world contexts. You’ll apply innovation toolkits, prototype solutions and participate in challenges such as innovation sprints inspired by your passions and interests. You’ll gain the practical and technical skills to think strategically about how to employ innovative ideas to build a better future.

With full professional Australian Computer Society accreditation, as a graduate you’ll be eligible and able to tackle a huge range of jobs in the ICT field. And as an innovation specialist, you can broaden your career prospects further in roles such as innovation consultant, innovation analyst, strategic designer, product manager, transformation lead, innovation strategist and innovation manager.
