Understanding the Digital Revolution (ITECH1100)

This course provides students with a broad foundation in Information Technology (IT), and establishes its context in society both historically and into the future. Students will develop an understanding of IT as a process that collects, stores, transports and transforms data to provide information and streamline practices. The course will cover the lifecycle of data and introduces students to topics such as hardware, software, operating systems, input and output, data storage and manipulation, coding, networking and security, and privacy. This course also acts as an introduction to the Business Systems stream, and will therefore investigate many of the above concepts through a lens of how such systems have revolutionised a range of businesses and industries.
