Information and communications technology
So you enjoy working with computers and think you may enjoy a career
in that direction?
Communication and information technology has become an essential
part of business, science and even our everyday lives. We use computers
in manufacturing, to control complex satellite systems and even to
book our airplane tickets. Computers are used to map networks, pipelines
or electricity wires, or to provide detailed maps of land use from
information collected by satellite observation.
Information and communication technology has long been recognised
as essential tools for socio-economic development and is an important
part of the dream of becoming an inclusive information society.
An aptitude for working with computers is an invaluable skill and
one that you can apply in a multitude of different forms at the CSIR.
Some of our people use their ICT skills to promote open source software
or to fight cyber crime, while others apply it to cutting-edge emerging
research areas such as robotics and nanotechnology. Other interesting
ICT career opportunities at the CSIR include careers in systems modelling,
firmware, digital signal processing and human language technology.
