ITB Schools & Departments
ITB has 2 academic schools: the School of Business and Humanities and the School of Informatics and Engineering.
This section will provide you with information on each of the schools and their departments.
BUSINESS AND HUMANITIES
The School of Business and Humanities is primarily focused on the development and provision of courses in Business, Sports Management and Coaching, Languages, Social Care and Social and Community Development. The range of courses offered reflects the diversity of higher education opportunities available at the Institute. Courses are developed and delivered to enable students to acquire the knowledge, develop the skills, and cultivate the attitudes necessary for success in employment. Both the theoretical and practical aspects of each course are reviewed regularly to ensure ongoing relevance to career opportunities in the industrial, commercial and service sectors.
The "ladder" system of progression between courses provides opportunities for students to progress from Higher Certificate to Ordinary Bachelor Degree and on to Honours Bachelor Degree and Postgraduate levels. A high level of motivation and commitment is necessary for students to reach their full potential. The learning process is facilitated within a positive and supportive environment, which encourages students to access the most up-to-date technologies and other resources provided at ITB.
The School of Business and Humanities has also established links with partner institutions in Europe to facilitate student exchanges, particularly for those taking European languages as part of their courses.

INFORMATICS AND ENGINEERING
Nationally accredited courses on offer at the School of Informatics and Engineering reflect the interdisciplinary approach to teaching, course design and research. We currently serve the needs of a knowledge-based society by offering a range of vocationally oriented higher education programmes in the areas of electronics, computer engineering, computer science, creative digital media, mechatronics, horticulture and apprenticeships. The school and its departments actively promotes the ladder of educational opportunity with graduated programmes of study allowing progression from Higher Certificate to Ordinary Bachelor Degree to Honours Bachelor Degree and to postgraduate awards. The combination of a modern learning environment and a professional and supportive staff ensure that all students have an opportunity to engage in and contribute to a comprehensive and contemporary experience of higher education.
The expertise of school staff have enabled a range of partnerships with local industry and the community to develop. In particular this co-operation in our core areas of curriculum design and research has ensured that our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes have direct relevance to industry and society.
Our goal is to provide an attractive option for all students seeking further and higher education opportunities in engineering, computer science, apprenticeships or horticulture, in the area we serve.
