The Doctor of Information Technology (DIT) is an intensive course of study leading to a professional doctorate in Information Technology. The first two semesters consist of a selection from the School’s masters-level units covering approaches to information technology and a wide range of topics of current concern in the industry. The final four research semesters culminate with the writing of a research dissertation that embodies a significant contribution to professional practice in Information Technology.
There is a critical need for modern information technology professionals responsible for establishing, maintaining and developing information systems, or addressing organisational concerns with network performance and security in a wide variety of sectors including commerce, telecommunications, health, education, architecture, mining, engineering, law and charities.
