Science Technology And Engineering Careers & Jobs

Science Technology And Engineering Careers & Jobs

The information technology (IT) industry in the US alone covers 120,000 establishments with a combined annual revenue of about $250 billion. Related industries include the manufacturers of computer hardware, software, and telecommunications equipment, as well as providers of Internet and telecommunications services. There is a continuing lack

Considering a career in IT is a little like negotiating a freeway - there are many ways in, it can be confusing and there are different opinions as to the best route - but once you've found your route it is very satisfying.

What makes a career in IT both exciting and daunting is the fact that there is an increasing rate of change in all areas of the field. This can make some skills irrelevant very quickly or over-emphasise others, so a well informed choice requires research.

Because computers now exist in every area of life we need people with a wide array of skills to work in the industry:

  • People skills are needed to communicate effectively with customers and colleagues
  • Strengths in art and design are needed for web design and general layout work
  • Logical thinking is essential for programmers and system design – computers rely on logic to solve the problems they are given
  • Network design and maintenance relies on people with maths and physics skills

It doesn’t matter what skill you have – there’s a position in the computing industry made for you!

Even in a challenging job market slumps in IT recruitment are only ever temporary. Why? Because IT permeates every aspect of our lives and our lives can literally depend on it.

Even if you don't pursue a career in IT specifically, you will still need IT skills. Whether you become an administrator, a doctor, a journalist, a mechanic … whatever, IT skills are essential in the 21st century.

Our Science Technology And Engineering courses will give you a head-start in acquiring those essential IT skills so sign up today.
