All KOI courses are accredited by TEQSA (Tertiary Education and Quality Standards Agency) and consistent with the AQF (Australian Qualifications Framework). TEQSA regulates qualifications in the Australian education system.
This means that KOI is recognised as providing its students with quality education for the courses on offer in line with Australia’s Higher Education Standards.
The first two trimesters of the Bachelor of Information Technology provide the underpinning knowledge and skills needed to successfully attempt the higher level subjects in the remaining trimesters.
The subjects in shaded boxes must be studied in the order they are presented as they provide pre-requisite knowledge for other subjects. The remaining subjects (core and elective) have a recommended trimester, but may be studied in other available trimester slots to suit individual student preferences, provided pre-requisites have been completed.
Students may choose any elective subjects from the list following the Course Overview, provided the subject is offered in the trimester they wish to study it and they have met the relevant pre-requisites.
The Bachelor of Information Technology offers a broad understanding of the concepts and practices of information technology and information systems, supported by related areas in data science and technology management. The course focuses on preparing students for the challenges of IT careers in the modern business environment, specifically preparing students for roles in programming, software development, network administration, web development, business analysis, database administration and systems administration. It aims to equip students with the decision-making and critical analysis skills required in systems and data management, as well as a variety of functional areas in business development and project management. There is a particular emphasis on the development of professional and personal skills to underpin success in business. This prepares students to apply their professional knowledge and skills in Information and Communication Technology (ICT) within an industry of their choice.
*Advancement in these roles generally requires additional certification or training
