This LLM in Information Technology Law focuses on the regulatory framework that governs information technology within international, European and domestic settings. Read more

This LLM in Information Technology Law focuses on the regulatory framework that governs information technology within international, European and domestic settings.

The programme is highly topical, exploring the second generation – and sometimes even third generation – of regulation that has evolved from the legal framework of the early 2000s. New developments in technology are also a key focus, as these force us to constantly review the very concept of information technology and appropriate legal responses.

Information technology regulation operates across jurisdictions, and a cross-fertilisation of regulatory responses occurs at the interface between domestic, regional and international law. Our aim is to enable you to understand this cross-fertilisation, to be able to contextualise it and place yourself within it.

Focus on information technology

The Master of Information Sciences will give you in-depth knowledge and expertise in information technology.

Find out more about the Master of Information Sciences parent structure.

In the Master of Information Sciences you will learn how to apply knowledge of ICT technologies and/or management with both a broad world-view and at a specialty level.

Undergraduate programmes focus on your technical knowledge such as programming skills. When you undertake postgraduate study, you will learn more about the application of the more complicated processes you can apply this knowledge to, such as developing complex and dependent operating and recognition systems.

Studying towards your masters is a satisfying and challenging process that will give you a sought-after postgraduate qualification. If you want to gain a more detailed understanding of an area of study, either for interest, or to perhaps move up the hierarchy in your career, you should consider this qualification.

In demand

A report by Absolute IT showed that IT employers are seeking increasing numbers of staff. In Auckland alone 75% of IT employers are planning to recruit additional staff and contractors in 2016. The majority of the hiring is taking place because of increased demand and new projects.

The research showed that high demand areas are now software development, business analysis, project management and data/database. These are the key areas of information sciences you can study at Massey.

What will you learn?

During your study you will learn how to apply problem-solving and analytical thinking skills to the analysis of, and solutions to, general software-based problems within the broader ICT community.

You will gain skills in evaluating policies and processes used in the design, construction, testing and maintenance of advanced technological solutions in order to make informed strategic decisions.
