The Graduate Diploma in Information Technology is a 1.5-year program intended for:

  • students with no or minimal prior computing background who wish to obtain a qualification in this discipline; or
  • students with a bachelor degree in in a relevant discipline who want to obtain a broader understanding of computing; or
  • students with a bachelor degree in computer science or computer engineering who wish to specialise in some particular areas of the discipline

The aim of this program is to provide students with a broad-based IT education, and more specialised knowledge in up to two areas, enabling them to work in a range of positions in the IT industry.

It is similar in scope to CSE's undergraduate BSc (Computer Science) program, while still allowing for a variable mix between breadth and depth amongst sub-fields.
