Program handbook

Description

The Master of Information Technology is a broad, flexible and technical information technology Masters degree. The program provides graduates with training and experience (according to personal development needs) by developing expertise in desired fields. The Master of Information Technology (MIT) program is designed to cater to both those who currently work in the industry but have no formal qualification and those with tertiary qualifications in another discipline and little information technology background but who wish to gain a qualification that will allow them to pursue an IT career.

Students can choose a specialisation in areas including business analytics and management information systems, but it will also be possible to complete the MIT without a specialisation. Selected students can undertake a research specialisation in IT (on-campus at Callaghan only), subject to GPA constraints and MIT Program Convenor approval.


Program learning outcomes

On successful completion of the program students will have:

  • The ability to identify and analyse complex problems within information technology and design solutions to these problems at a highly skilled level
  • A depth of technical expertise in at least one facet of information technology sufficient for a career in information technology together with the capacity to continue developing relevant knowledge, skills and expertise throughout their careers
  • The ability to manage projects in aspects of information technology relevant to their field of study, including the ability to develop, manage and participate at all levels in team environments
  • An understanding of professionalism and ethics in the context of the global information technology industry.
  • The ability to communicate effectively through a range of verbal, written and/or presentation skills at an advanced level
  • The ability to apply their knowledge and skills to plan and execute a substantial capstone experience or a research-based project and/or piece of scholarship
