When you study Information Technology at CDU you will immerse yourself in our interactive learning environment and use state-of-the-art technologies and methodologies to prepare for a career in your chosen field.
Demand is our top priority; we decide what courses we are going to run based on industry intel and employment opportunities.
Cyber security is one of the hot topics right now. With the rapid growth in technology-related crimes, Individuals, businesses and government face serious threats from hackers, breaches and compliance issues.
Software engineering students work with a variety of programming languages, such as C++ and Java. Senior projects and internships provide students with the ability to solve real-world problems and often lead to job offers after graduation.
Data Science & Information Systems
Our data science courses will equip you with the technical and analytical skills needed to manage Information Systems' data and gain useful insights from massive data sets in these systems. Students will develop an understanding of how to use technology for efficient and effective data collection, conversion, analysis, visualisation and interpretation in Information Systems.
IT Code Fair
Each year we host the IT Code Fair that provides a means to encourage and support students’ talent and showcase their work to University, industry communities and future employers. As part of the Code Fair, we celebrate the International Hour of Code with code hour workshops at secondary schools.

Each year CDU IT students participate in GovHack, a hack-a-thon focused on unlocking the value in open data published by the government. GovHack has grown from a small data mashup event in 2009 to an international competition bringing together more than 3000 coders, designers, storytellers, activists, analysts and journalists.
GovHack celebrates technical and creative capacity, opens the door to collaboration with governments, and has helped to advance the cause of open data to drive social and economic value.
