Technology is embedded in our everyday lives and continually changes how we work.

Everyone uses technology at home and at work, but do you know how to fix it or change it to suit what you want it to do? These are in-demand skills and will give you an advantage in any job. Some researchers have even predicted that all future jobs will need these skills eventually.

Disciplines of study

Study areas that focus on technology include:

  • Computer science
  • Computer and network systems engineering
  • Digital media
  • Game development and animation
  • Information technology
  • Mobile application development
  • Networking and cybersecurity
  • Software development

Levels of training

Computer technology is used in most jobs and in the job application process. Adults can learn or improve basic computer skills through Adult Community Education (ACE). For more information about ACE courses and your local providers, see Adult Community Education.

Vocational Education and Training (VET) qualifications can provide you with technology skills and knowledge across a range of industry areas to help you start, advance or change your career. Qualifications such as the Certificate III in Information, Digital Media and Technology are reviewed regularly to ensure skills meet the needs of industry and are current with advances in technology.

VET qualifications can also be a pathway to further studies at university where more advanced skills and knowledge can be learnt. 

To learn more about the types of jobs and training options that use technology, see STEM careers.
