Information & Communication Technology

Definition of ICT

1The World Bank defines Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) as, “hardware, software, networks, and media for the collection, storage, processing, transmission and presentation of information (voice, data, text, images), as well as related services.” It is an umbrella term that includes the integration of telecommunications, hardware, software, middleware, storage, and audio-visual systems, which enable users to access, store, transmit, and manipulate information.

Program Goals

2My goal for the Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) degree is to further my knowledge in e-commerce, web analytics, web securities, and web apps. I feel that the future of e-commerce lies heavily on web analytics, web securities, and web applications that runs directly within a browser.
