Information Technology & Engineering

Information and communication technologies have become critically important area in the advancement to the global society. Not least because we increasingly live in a divided world and in an increasingly divided society, information and communication have pivotal roles in the development of a society. Technological advancement during the last few decades has transformed global society into an information society. Today, more than ever, ICTs are recognized as means for sustainable human, social and economic development.

Innovations in ICT and their diffusion lead to much more than faster communication and the simple automation of tasks. Many developing countries have accepted ICT as a national mission within an overall 4C framework of ICT: computers, communications, content, and human capacity. The challenges of ICT across all dimensions in the four interrelated features: awareness, availability, accessibility, and affordability require improvement in order to reduce the digital divide. Security and privacy issues are key concerns that place an implicit cost on transactions.

Engineering discipline is the creative application of scientific innovations, which is always dynamic as new technologies are emerging often in response to the human need for development. The rapid pace of technological advancement gives birth to new disciplines of engineering such as nanotechnology, mechatronics or computer engineering. Engineering is regarded as the key driver to the human development. Thus the development of engineering skills is vital for the social and economic development.

The ICT and Engineering training courses offered by AIT Extension will continue to stress on capacity building in the Asia pacific region. The focus of our courses will be on the development of skills in emerging domains of engineering and ICT that will enhance the information communication and engineering delivery capabilities of an organization.
