IT considered ‘safe’ industry in crisis

The economic crisis has led to a sharp rise in IT enrolments according to University figures.

Queensland University of Technology Faculty of Science and Technology executive dean Simon Kaplan said domestic IT enrolments jumped by 15 percent this year. Kaplan believes this is because the IT industry is viewed as secure, with work that is creative and diverse.

University of Sydney’s School of IT head Sanjay Chawla said the IT industry is fairing well in the downturn, with IT companies remaining relatively strong.

“We are still getting queries from companies looking for students with good IT skills.”
