WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT GREEN IT
Green and sustainable IT is becoming a serious focus for many businesses looking to reduce their carbon footprints and ensure their operations are environmentally friendly. The 8-month Graduate Certificate in Information Technology Sustainability teaches students how to make sure IT developments within an organisation meet those needs.
The course is arranged into four clusters of training within the broad category of ICT systems where you'll lead applied research in ICT sustainability, facilitate business analysis, manage improvements in ICT sustainability and then conduct a business case study for integrating sustainability in ICT planning and design projects.
The Graduate Certificate in Information Technology Sustainability has no formal entry requirements, but the preferred pathway for potential students is the successful completion of any ICT Diploma or Advanced Diploma or demonstrated vocational experience in a range of work environments in senior network engineering or ICT roles.
