Video Transcript: Professor Dian Tjondronegoro

The technology around you is only going to be smarter if people - the next generation - are smarter about using it.
I am Dian Tjondronegoro, Professor of IT in the School of Business and Tourism.

IT at Southern Cross is different to everything else out there. We are very much focused on what IT can do. It's about making impact in people's lives.

The first thing that a student starting a degree in digital business with us will learn is about how technology actually works, what is the "latest of the latest" in terms of what IT can offer. So it's rather more than just programming databases and some of the very traditional areas.

We are looking at things like the internet of things, virtual reality, augmented reality and artificial intelligence. Some of these are very important components of IT.

IT is a fast-moving field. If you learn about how digital technologies can do things beyond what people do nowadays, then it will absolutely change the way that you want to do things from here on, wherever you are.
