Careers in computer science and ICT

If you’re considering a career in computer science or ICT, you might be wondering if both disciplines mean the same thing. So, do they? Not quite. Although both share many similarities, each discipline has a different focus. For a start, ICT is not just about computers, rather, it has a broad approach that studies how digital information is communicated. In contrast, IT is focuses on hardware and the way computers process data, while computer science focuses on theory and programming.

At bachelor degree level, the courses you can take in this field include:

  • Bachelor of Computer Science
  • Bachelor of Business Informatics
  • Bachelor of Engineering in Microelectronic Engineering
  • Bachelor of Information and Communications Technology
  • Bachelor of Information Technology/ICT
  • Bachelor of Multimedia/Multimedia & Digital Arts
  • Bachelor of Science (Games Software Design and Production)
  • Bachelor of Internet Science and Technology
  • Bachelor of Science (Software Engineering)
  • Bachelor of Science (Information Systems) 

Here’s a look at different careers grouped according to different roles within the field. Do note that job roles will overlap in many work environments – as such, do not rely on a job title only to determine what duties you will be undertaking in a particular setting. It’s best to do some research about different industries and organisations, their job titles, and the specific tasks they require, in order to find a job role that best matches your skills and interests.
