The programmes and courses lead to a variety of professions and professional roles, such as the use of IT in businesses, computer security, systems development, programming, web design, database construction, IT for publishing, entertainment or education.

Computer science is the technical part of the subject. The education gives therefore knowledge of computers, programming, data communications and data processing.
