The Australian Computer Society (ACS) has accredited Charles Sturt University IT and computing programs for another five years.

Thanks to the wealth of expert teaching and high-quality learning outcomes, CSU Study Centres’ IT graduates are well prepared for rewarding careers in an exciting and constantly changing industry.

Designed to assist educational institutions that are preparing students to enter the IT sector, the continued ACS accreditation of IT and computing courses showcases CSU’s commitment to excellence and innovation in the field. CSU courses in information Technology, including Bachelor of Information Technology and Master of Information Technology, will now be certified by the ACS until 2022.

Head of the CSU School of Computing and Mathematics Associate Professor Irfan Altas said “The accreditation of the CSU IT and computing courses is very important because it shows the high quality and standards of our courses.”

The information technology sector has seen a significant increase in career opportunities year on year, with the Australian Department of Employment predicting that the demand for IT professionals will increase by 12.8% in 2018.

CSU’s School of Computing and Mathematics is ranked third in Australia and is the number one choice for postgraduates, who see a 95% employment rate on average within four months of graduating (Graduate Careers Australia). CSU programs provide hands-on experience with the latest software, hardware and technologies, including mobile programming, cloud computing and network security.
