Information technology, in the first instance, brings to us the latest developments in science, technology and the arts in the advanced world. Many companies offer internship opportunities to students to get their jobs done at a lower price. And to meet the increasing demand of this technology, the modern IT departments are now using high capacity computers, database management systems, servers and cryptography. Careers that you may choose to follow include a help desk analyst, application developer, project manager, wireless support analyst and Internet Developer.
The above are the traditional information technology jobs, but now more and more career fields are requiring extensive computer knowledge. According to the most recent study by the Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics, IT jobs are expected to grow more than twice as fast as the average for all other occupations. Meanwhile, mundane technology was developing the ability to build simple structures on a molecular scale.
Globalisation has a profound impact in shaping the Indian Information Technology (IT) industry over the years with India capturing a sizeable chunk of the global market for technology sourcing and business services. Through courses in computer programming, database systems, data analytics, user interfaces and web development, you will learn how to analyze, design, develop and maintain information systems. Large companies have bigger requirements for the Information technology departments with bigger responsibilities in information storage, information protection, information processing, information transmission, and even information retrieval.
That’s not all, the Phonebloks, the concept of modular smartphone designed by Dave Hakkens, all add up a great value to the world of technology. Besides, the rate at which the technology is changing now might be much slower than it would be 10 years from now. By ‘products’ I mean both physical products such as giclee prints, and non-physical, like information products or audio downloads.
The module will adopt a practical lab based case study approach to enable the students to develop their knowledge of the design and use of technology in real world settings and to be aware of likely future developments in computing and IT and of the possible social impacts of those developments. Even more recently however I have become deeply involved with the product management side.
