    Urban planning + IT degree??

    Hello Cyburbia,

    I'm an urban planning undergraduate who has been given the opportunity to also complete a Diploma of IT with just an extra semester of study. Should I add this Diploma to my qualifications or not waste my time / money? Do you find that there is a high demand in IT skills in the job and would it enhance employability?

    Thanks very much!

    Do it IMO. My prior career in Systems doesn't translate on the tech side very much, but systems thinking is very useful. Any troubleshooting skills you pick up will be very useful, as will shifting scales.

    Always pick up the opportunity to diversify your talents. And it doesn't sound like a "diploma" would add a significant financial burden???
