The Information Technology Division is responsible for building, maintaining and supporting the University’s computing infrastructure. OIT provides a number of services for students, faculty, and staff of The University of Alabama. Many companies now have IT departments for managing the computers, networks, and other technical areas of their businesses. Empower your employees to feel recognised and bring your business to its full potential through new skills development.
With access to real-world industry and research projects, students will also attain stronger technical skills, professional skills and problem solving skills to make them more employable and adaptable in the field of ICT. When you choose our Bachelor of Information Technology, you’ll be able to study business electives or even combine your degree with a Bachelor of Business Administration.
From state-of-the-art technology and facilities to hands-on experience, our students are prepared for an IT role in any industry. Nearly every company, from a software design firm, to the biggest manufacturer, to the smallest mom & popâ€ store, needs IT workers to keep their businesses running smoothly, according to industry experts.
IT includes several layers of physical equipment ( hardware ), virtualization and management or automation tools, operating systems and applications ( software ) used to perform essential functions. This is applicable to all four of the CIT skill areas – infrastructure, enterprise software, web services and user support.
At the end of the year, students work in teams using agile development mirroring what happens in industry. Anyone can use free and open source technology, but you need appropriate knowledge, mindset and skillset to contribute to and to leverage these technologies.
