Future opportunities

IT is one of those great subjects that allows you to maximise on your own strengths. If you turn out to have a really technical interest in IT, you could work for a bank or corporation helping to design systems which transfer information from a database to a terminal. For the game minded students, this is a pathway into the game graphics, development and game production industry. For the business minded students this is a pathway into the practical business environment. However, if you are more interested in the user interface, you could work in advertising or for a handset manufacturer. Information is everywhere, so IT is a sound career move.
