ICT has become a crucial part of our everyday lives. We are living in a world where technology is evolving rapidly, creating new subject areas to explore and changing the way people work in every area, from medicine and fashion to engineering and economics. So whatever your career plans, you know it’s vital to develop your grasp of these ideas and concepts that will shape your world. ICT will help you think logically, solve puzzles and be tenacious when the going gets tough. But it is also really creative and you’ll get a real buzz out of getting something to work yourself. It’s no exaggeration to say the world runs on computers. They are everywhere: in homes, schools and offices but not just in the way you think. They are also embedded in all sorts of machines. Computers control aeroplanes, chemical plants, send rockets to space, control the central heating and make sure your mum/dad’s car runs efficiently. As new things are developed, the world needs more and more people to research new ways of using computers to do the things they want. ICT will provide you with a great foundation to take your passion for computing further to help you pursue a career in any of those areas mentioned.
