Trans-Tasman agreement on ICT qualifications looms

Trans-Tasman agreement on ICT qualifications looms

As part of a new agreement between the computer societies in Australia and New Zealand, a joint body will be set up to accredit “computer and IT-related degrees”, giving them equal status in both countries as meeting appropriate professional standards.

“Most if not all countries New Zealand would compare [itself] to already have degree accreditation by the ICT professional body, and have for a number of years,” says NZCS CEO Paul Matthews. “For instance, in Australia the Australian Computer Society (ACS) has been accrediting degrees for more than 20 years, while the BCS in the UK has been doing it even longer. In Australia every university participates, and there is a high participation rate in most other countries,” he says.

The move also brings the computing profession into line with other professions, such as accounting, architecture and engineering, where Australian and New Zealand professional bodies mutually recognise the status of each others’ degrees in the relevant disciplines.
