This course is a professional qualification in Information Technology, designed to provide candidates with appropriate practical understanding, skills and knowledge for managing IT use, change and development. The primary aim is to allow IT professionals the opportunity for professional upgrading or an extension of their qualifications and experience.
The degree may be completed in one of two ways:
a) Coursework: students complete 48 credit points of advanced graduate-level units.
b) Coursework and Dissertation: students complete 36 credit points of coursework units and a 12-credit point dissertation.
If you do not have an IT qualification, you may enter this Masters degree via a pathway which provides you with foundational IT knowledge (Graduate Certificate in IT), before completing a Graduate Diploma and then the MIT. The complete pathway can be undertaken over four semesters.
You may exit the Masters at various points, to complete the Graduate Certificate in Information Technology or the Graduate Diplomas (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), while the Graduate Diploma in Data Science forms the first half of the MIT (Data Science).
