Abstract

While much advertising for ICT degrees uses career outcomes to market them to potential students, there is little evidence about whether these outcomes have been truly embedded into the curriculum and hence whether they can actually be attained by students. This paper reports on a process to design a University ICT curriculum that is directly informed by the career outcomes relevant to the local and national ICT industry.
