Griffith’s ICT research and teaching staff are acknowledged as world industry leaders working across information technology, computing, business information systems, IT management, multimedia design and interactive entertainment. This broad-based expertise ensures an overriding enterprise and initiative in study program development and delivery.
Recognised in the top 3 in Australia for teaching quality, the School of ICT presides over Queensland’s only Computer Science degree, which offers either a practical industry placement or exclusive research opportunities during the final year of study. Another ingenious acquisition is the highly specialised double degree Bachelor of Criminology and Criminal Justice/Bachelor of IT. This degree places students within the expansive realm of cyber-crime and dual eligibility into the Australian and New Zealand Society of Criminology, and Australian Computer Society.
Membership into Intercollegiate gaming hackathons, formalised Robotics Associations and the Gold Coast Ladies in Technology, Engineering, and Science (GClites) organisation are encouraged by the School of ICT to further enhance theoretical and practical knowledge of technologies during study programs.
