The Smarter Human : Just Imagine

Welcome to the 5th Industrial Revolution

5IR looks beyond the Industry 4.0 (4IR) pillars of excessive automation and obsessive optimisation, and aims to bring the human back to the forefront of thought. It is a space where humanism, civility, inclusivity, creativity and purpose will thrive alongside profit and digital transformation.

At MANCOSA’s School of Information and Digital Technology (SIDT) we are imagining a better future – one where technology and humans coexist in a purpose-driven equilibrium.

Smarter Learning. Smarter Humans.

The rapid growth of information and digital technologies, perpetuated through the emergence of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR), has caused seismic shifts in the ways that businesses and societies operate. As a result, education in the field of information and digital technology is no longer an exclusive domain for aspiring tech-fundi’s, IT managers and chief IT officers. Instead, digital and IT education is now a prerequisite for any individual seeking to operate across a wide-spectrum of industries and sectors within the modern digital economy.

The School of Information and Digital Technology (SIDT) is MANCOSA’s response to the overwhelming demand for contemporary, fit-for-purpose digital and IT education offerings. The SIDT attracts students seeking to advance their skills and qualifications as technology professionals, whilst also catering to students who may work in a variety of other industries and who are seeking to operate effectively as digital citizens, digital artisans, leaders and innovators.

Connect. Discover. Create

In developing the optimal level of digital skills for students, the SIDT’s programme offerings comprise a mix of formal learning programmes (FLPs) and short learning programmes (SLPs). A wide variety of topics and subjects are offered through the SIDT. These range from digital marketing, cyber security and social media to technology management, digital leadership, 3d printing and robotics.
