  • business analysis: designing and implementing technical requirements, quality assurance processes and contingency plans for businesses.
  • cloud architecture: developing, improving and designing cloud infrastructure, including disaster recovery plans.
  • cloud engineering: building, implementing and managing cloud infrastructure and virtual networks.
  • cyber security: protecting sensitive data and information through security architecture and developing disaster recovery and contingency plans.
  • database and data management: creating, designing and monitoring systems that store data and optimise organisational knowledge management.
  • front end web development: designing dynamic and complex websites, user experience solutions and documents using extensible mark-up languages.
  • game art and design: creating complex 2D and 3D modelling and animation software through scripts and storyboards.
  • game programming: creating complex 2D and 3D interactive games and media, building graphical user interfaces and applying artificial intelligence in game development.
  • systems administration: reviewing maintenance procedures and support to help troubleshoot system applications.
  • systems analysis: modelling and testing data objects, data processes and preferred ICT system solutions
  • telecommunications network engineering: managing logistics, organisational specifications, regulations and legislative requirements across network projects.
  • Licensing, legislative, regulatory or certification considerations

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this qualification at the time of publication.
