The primary aim of this course is to provide IT professionals the opportunity to significantly extend their existing qualifications and experience.
The degree may be completed in one of two ways:
- Coursework: students complete 48 credit points of graduate-level units.
- Coursework and Dissertation: students complete 36 credit points of graduate-level coursework units and a 12-credit point dissertation. The Coursework and Dissertation option is only available to students who have completed 24 credit points towards the MIT and obtained a GPA of 2.5 or greater.
You may enter this Masters degree via a pathway through a Graduate Diploma which provides you with foundational IT knowledge before completing the MIT. The complete pathway can be undertaken over four semesters.
Students may elect to exit the Masters at various points, to complete either the Graduate Certificate in Information Technology or the Graduate Diploma in Information Technology Management, Internetworking and Security or Data Science, depending on unit selection.
The Graduate Diploma in Information Technology Management forms the first half of the MIT (IT Management specialisation), the Graduate Diploma in Internetworking and Security forms the first half of the MIT (Internetworking and Security specialisation), and the Graduate Diploma in Data Science forms the first half of the MIT (Data Science).
