Master of Information Technology

About This Masters Degree

Course Description


Hone your skills in a specialist IT area, build on the knowledge gained in your undergraduate degree, and advance your career with our Master of Information Technology (MInfoTech).

If you’re an established or aspiring IT professional, the Master of Information Technology will strengthen your understanding of underlying principles by applying them to practical, industry focused problems.

Students will then apply the knowledge and skills gained in the coursework units by completing a project unit in an area of their MIT specialisation. These projects may vary from advising on the strategic IT management needs of an organisation through to implementing web-enabled database systems on secure networks, depending upon the specialisation chosen.
