ABOUT The I.T Faculty
The Faculty consists of five people who collectively have a broad range of skills. The faculty hopes to help I.T students become world-class scholars who would make a significant contribution to businesses and society in general. Knowledge is growing at an enormous rate year on year. Companies are seeking out I.T professionals who are able to access this data and provide them with advantages over their competitors.
Additionally the rate at which technology is changing means that methods and procedures are quickly becoming obsolete. I.T professionals are constantly in demand to develop and/or modify systems to keep up with the ever-changing workplace. The future belongs to those who are adaptable, we aim to guide our I.T students into being able to keep-up and adapt alongside the demands of this rapidly changing market.
