Joshua Beale is studying a Bachelor of IT and is part of the CSIT mentoring program.
Bachelor of Information Technology
I am part of the CSIT Mentoring Program. I enjoy the mentoring program as I get to hang around with other students as well as help newer students with understanding the concepts in their subjects.
I decided to study a Bachelor of IT as I was interested in learning programming languages.
I chose to study at RMIT as it happened to be the provider for the OUA courses in programming that I first signed up for and its location is quite convenient.
The highlight of my studies has been mentoring, helping and being helped by classmates to understand things.
The degree has really improved my knowledge in the field as well as my problem solving and analysis skills.
I enjoyed a number of subjects especially SADI (Software Architecture: Design and Implementation) as I quite like the Java language and I found the more advanced topics quite interesting.
I was lucky enough to be selected for the RMIT Computer Science Summer Studentship in 2014-15.

The course is flexible as you can take a minor study area. If you take one unit and decide you don’t really want to do the other three, you can always use the unit as a student elective instead which allows you to look at some different learning areas.
While completing the remainder of my degree I hope to get some tutor or sessional lab work.
I am still considering what area I want to work in but I am finding the field very interesting.
