Welcome to ICT and Computing

ICT (Information and Communications Technology) and Computing are two disciplines that involve the use of computers in modern society. ICT focuses on the use of programs and how software solutions are developed and deployed in business. Computing investigates how the programs we use are created. It also examines how computer hardware and software work on a logical and electronic level.
