About this course

The Master of Information Technology will give students skills in web development, software development, information systems and other aspects of information technology. The program consists of a core of courses in these areas along with design computing team projects and a capstone research project. Both introductory and advanced electives are available in areas including computer systems, web information systems, human-computer interaction, artificial intelligence, networks and computer security. Students can build on their previous skills and be able to apply information technology within their own industries. The Master of Information Technology is an ideal choice for a student who does not have a previous IT degree and wishes to enhance their current discipline areas through specialist IT knowledge.

Study options:

Graduates will have the opportunity to progress to the following programs:

  • Master of Computer Science
  • Master of Computer Science

Careers:

Graduates of the Master of Information Technology will have completed an industrial-scale system from initial specification through to design, implementation and documentation, and will have skills in software engineering, information systems, discrete mathematics, basic operating systems, networking, relational databases, advanced databases, ontology and the semantic web, web information systems and service-oriented architectures.

Depending on their area of expertise, many of the graduates will have specialist knowledge in human-computer interaction, algorithms and data structures, networking, information security, artificial intelligence, and artificial minds. 

Master of Information Technology graduates are employed in areas as diverse as

  • electronic commerce
  • information systems
  • technology management
  • computer science
  • health informatics
  • geographical information systems
  • biotechnology
