ITGS is a valuable course. Developments in IT systems have effectively created a second industrial revolution. As the relationship between human beings and IT systems continues to evolve, ITGS will provide young people with the tools to address the effects of this revolution. Furthermore, ITGS will also uniquely prepare young people with the wisdom to be informed and responsible citizens of tomorrow.
