Computers & IT reprogrammed at VU
Study an IT/digital media course at VU – the first Australian university to use a 'block' model of learning, where you study one unit at a time rather than juggling several at once, making your transition to university easier.
We are also one of only six universities in Australia offering both TAFE and university courses, meaning you can choose the level of study that best suits you.
VU ranked among the top 3 unis in Victoria for computer science, engineering & technology (THE World Rankings)
Careers in IT
Trends signal that by 2030 the average Australian will spend 75% more time per week on tasks requiring advanced technology skills than today (FYA New Work Order Report, 2017) so jobs in the fields of network and systems computing and web and mobile-app development are set to keep increasing.
VU is among the top three universities in Victoria for education in computer science, engineering and technology (THE World University Rankings 2020) and we have the second-highest earning graduates in Victoria within three years of graduation (2018 Graduate Outcomes Survey). We’ll get you ready for a career as an IT professional with the latest skills across a broad range of fields – from fighting cyber-crime to web or app design, consultancy and systems administration.

I have VU to thank for so many opportunities. From placing me at my internship at the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre where I got first-hand industry experience in the Footscray community, and giving me access to the best experience ever – European Innovation Academy (EIA).
