Program description

The Graduate Diploma in IT (GradDipIT) is intended for learners wishing to supplement their existing knowledgebase with a practical overview of the tools and techniques relating to Information Technology. This programme of study offers learners a hands-on approach to understanding how to design, deploy, maintain, troubleshoot and improve organisational IT solutions.

What you will learn
