The skills and interests required for this area are related to coding, web and app technologies and the design and formatting of digital information. 

Social media, apps, websites, computer programs for businesses, digital health services, military and educational systems, instructions for industrial machinery, robots, vehicles, aircraft and ships – as smart technology becomes more and more integrated into modern living, a career in this area is a way to get involved in multiple different job sectors.

Whether you want to be a web developer, software engineer or digital designer, this sector will let you use your planning, testing, mathematical, artistic and creative skills to deliver software that can make a difference to people, entertain the masses or power the businesses and machinery of the modern world.
