How does your education pathway look like?

What skills do you need for a Information System course?

Good with Computers

This was obvious, wasn’t it? To make it in IT you need to know how computers function, going much further than just playing solitaire on it. You probably love to tweak and meddle with your PC at home to get the best performance out of it.

Good with Your Hands

While you’re not bad at studying books when necessary, you’ll need to be extra skilful with the practical portion of everything. Almost everything in the IT worlds is practical. So while memorising is good, to make it, you’ll need to properly understand and implement the concepts you learn in real-life scenarios.

Visionary

It’s been noted for some time now that IT is the most in-demand skillset required. As such, you will need to be someone who thinks way ahead, thinking of the next big thing and how you can possibly make that happen.

Consistent

Remember those late nights you spent the day before an exam? Cramming everything in as you left it till the last minute. Well that won’t work in IT. You need to be consistent in your assignments and work or else you’ll fail.
