    JCU's Bachelor of IT is a great mix of the hard and soft skills that are needed and expected by the industry. These skills helped me get to where I am now, but it was the lecturers, tutors and student mentors who provided assistance the whole way through the program, that allowed me to enjoy and thrive in what I do.
