In 2018, UCT launched the new School of Information Technology in response to the growing needs of the South African and global tech industry, and the increasing demand for university qualifications in the sector.

The 4th revolution is on the horizon and developments such as Artificial Intelligence, Big Data Analysis and Cloud Computing are resulting in technologies becoming part of our daily lives.
