information programs of study expose the students to a wide range of current industry standard geographic information systems software that is applied to applications such as government, emergency services, land development, environmental management and resource industries as well as many others.

In addition, the CIT Bruce campus showcases the latest in purpose-built facilities for hands-on skills training in emerging sustainable technologies for both residential and commercial construction sectors. The Bruce CIT campus meets or exceeds ACT government requirements for a sustainable commercial development. It is able to conserve energy and water with a minimal carbon footprint. The campus incorporates the latest sustainable technologies, including grid-connected solar and wind power generation. Students are able to commission solar panels and wind generators and receive hands-on scenario-based training in testing and monitoring smart metering and loggers for energy management and energy efficiency analysis

CIT Bruce has tri-generation micro turbines with absorption chillers to harness waste heat for cooling and heating of the building. Students are able to vary combustion rates and monitor energy efficiencies on solar hot water systems for the supply of hot water to ablution buildings and for hydronic heating and radiator panels. It has water recycling and sewer mining, meaning that water used is treated on site to give students hands-on skills with installation, operation and maintenance of grey and black water recycling systems.

Another non-traditional CIT Bruce course is the bachelor of forensic science (crime scene examination). Students gain the scientific knowledge and practical skills required to collect, analyse and interpret forensic evidence and present that evidence in court. The course was developed with the National Institute of Forensic Sciences, the Australian and New Zealand Forensic Science Society, the Australian Federal Police and the New South Wales Police Force. CIT is one of Australia’s pioneers and current leaders in the field of forensic science education. CIT trains crime scene examiners from every Australian state and territory police force and international forces. It is made possible by the partnership with the Australian Federal Police and the University of Canberra.

Through CIT’s partnership with the National Centre for Forensic Studies, undergraduate studies in the field sciences could lead to postgraduate studies in management, science or a specialist forensic area. Examples of educational pathways for graduates include honours, masters and PhD programs at the University of Canberra, honours programs at the Australian National University, and honours and PhD programs at the University of Technology Sydney.

Another course at CIT Bruce, the Advanced Diploma of Screen and Media, trains students in broadcast and electronic media production, including camera, audio operations, lighting, editing and studio production. Students work in studios and on location making short films, television and radio content. This includes scripting through to post production. They also cover the legal, occupational health and safety issues and financial issues of the industry. The advanced diploma allows students to develop and manage real media projects in work-based scenarios to turn out industry-ready graduates.
