The Bachelor of Information Technology in Mainframe Computing focuses on the systems development aspects of the information technology profession, with emphasis on mainframe computing. Students enter this course at year two level following a selection process - please see 'Course Requirements' and Admission Requirements' below.
Students study mainframe technologies based on the IBM z/OS environment and graduate with a comprehensive understanding of the systems and application architectures, and the ability to program and develop systems in the z/OS environment. Students undertake initial mainframe units at the start of their course (year 2), building on their first year studies, to enable them to be effective in their work place with their sponsor. They will have undertaken two open electives in their first year (if at UC and probably if elsewhere). Students complete their mainframe major with the capstone unit Systems Integration in their final semester.
Applicants must meet normal University requirements for admission to an undergraduate course or hold qualifications deemed to be equivalent by the University's Admissions Committee. Applicants must have already completed the first year of an undergraduate IT course (or equivalent TAFE diploma) and must also have achieved a GPA of 5 or higher to be admitted to this course.
Additional Admission Requirements
Applicants' first year course must have included introductory systems analysis and also a rigorous, object-oriented programming language. Applicants will go through a further selection process conducted by industry partner, Global Online Learning and interviews with the potential sponsor.
