Master of Information Technology

The Master of Information Technology enables students who have completed a bachelor degree in information technology/computing to achieve a postgraduate level qualification in information technology.

The programme has been designed to produce IT graduates who are able to think critically and have a number of high level skills in the IT field that can be applied in a wide range of situations.

The principles underlying the design of the Master of Information Technology are similar to those of the Postgraduate Diploma in Information Technology, the Graduate Diploma in Information Technology and the Bachelor of Computing Systems. Students entering the Master of Information Technology will have completed a Postgraduate Diploma in Information Technology or have already completed an IT degree with a grade point average of at least a B.

  • There is a focus on both in-depth theoretical knowledge and understanding of the information technology environment and professional practice in which the knowledge and understanding are applied.
  • It is designed to extend and deepen an individual’s knowledge and skills by building on attainment gained from undergraduate study in the computing field and to extend current IT professionals in their career progression.
  • The programme builds on the student’s existing knowledge and skills through courses that research and apply information technology knowledge and skills in an environment that combines project work, case studies, real-life simulations, and practical work experience.
  • It encourages flexibility that acknowledges the diversity of the IT environment and the diversity in learner interest and needs.
  • It encourages participants to apply research skills to identify solutions to Information Technology problems or issues.
