The Master of Information Technology provides the knowledge and skills required to design, develop and maintain complex systems using state-of-the-art technologies and methodologies. It includes a general introduction to ICT and provides the opportunity for students to gain advanced specialist skills in areas such as networks, software development, and information systems analysis and management.
Students also have the opportunity to apply their skills through industry-related project work, including industry-linked projects for real clients. This project work can demonstrate students’ skills and knowledge to potential future employers.
The program incorporates units from the Graduate Diploma of Information Technology and Graduate Certificate of Information Technology.
The Master of Information Technology course is concerned with the mastery of theoretical knowledge and practical skills related to the design, construction, operation, support and maintenance of information technology (IT) solutions.
This course will provide you with advanced skills and introduces state-of-the-art techniques used in the design and construction of IT solutions, as well as the research skills needed to assess the effectiveness of a solution or technology. You will gain specialist skills and should become capable of working with information technology solutions at an advanced level.
This course provides graduates with knowledge and skills equipping them to undertake professional work at an advanced level in field of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), and as a pathway for research and further learning. The Master of Information Technology provides graduates from non-IT backgrounds a path to move into a career in IT.
