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.

Complete in under two years

If you study full-time you can complete the Masters of Information Sciences in three semesters (one and half years).

This is a taught programme, with a major component an in-depth professional project.

Flexibility of focus

Within information technology you can make the most of our lecturer’s research expertise to focus on topics that interest you such as mobile systems and security. Or you have the freedom to graduate without a major and mix and match the topics that interest you the most. Areas of expertise include:

  • Massey Auckland: artificial intelligence, compilers, computer graphics, computer vision, parallel and distributed computing, operating systems and advanced computer systems.
  • Massey Palmerston North: empirical software engineering, program verification, human-computer interaction, technology - support learning, artificial intelligence, smart environment, machine learning, scientific computing, health informatics and graph algorithms.

Giving you relevant work experience

A professional practice project is a major part of this masters. You will have the opportunity to lead real projects for real companies on real issues that they wish to solve. This experience can directly lead to roles and add substantial value to your resume when you are seeking employment.

Why postgraduate study?

Postgraduate study is hard work but hugely rewarding and empowering. The Master of Information Sciences will push you to produce your best creative, strategic and theoretical ideas. The workload replicates the high-pressure environment of senior workplace roles.

Not just more of the same

Postgraduate study is not just ‘more of the same’ undergraduate study. Our experts are there to guide but if you have come from undergraduate study, you will find that postgraduate study demands more in-depth and independent study. It takes you to a new level in knowledge and expertise especially in planning and undertaking research.

120-credit Master of Information Sciences (by thesis only)

You can also complete a Master of Information Sciences (by thesis only). This is a 120 credit research qualification for those who have completed the BInfSc (Hons) or PGDipInfSc.

We are developing a revolutionary new form of transportation at the intersection of airplane design, robotics and human-centered design. Read more

The Project

We are developing a revolutionary new form of transportation at the intersection of airplane design, robotics and human-centered design. The goal of this project is to design the user experience of the whole process, starting from the user deciding to book a flight to walking away from the landing area. All aspects of the process need to be considered, including payment, instructions, communication with staff, friends, and family. You will be using a user-centered design process to go through several iterations of concept development, design and evaluation. The whole process needs to offer an extremely user friendly and attractive design while managing the complexity of flight. The project will start in mid February 2018 as part of the Masters in Human Interface Technology (MHIT) program.

The Candidate

The ideal candidate for this project would have a background in user experience design. Knowledge of scenario writing, personas and user evaluation would be desirable.

About the HIT Lab NZ

The HIT Lab NZ is a dynamic, international, multidisciplinary environment, bringing together people with varying viewpoints to design new ways of supporting people in their everyday lives, be it at work, play, or school. We take a human-centred approach, starting by looking at the people we are looking to support (e.g., young, old, skilled, unskilled), the tasks they need help with (e.g., repairing a device, visualizing a new house), and the environment they will be in (e.g., at work, in the home, visiting a museum), then designing solutions within these constraints using appropriate advanced technologies.

We hope to provide a welcoming space for people from a wide breadth of areas pertaining to the human condition, such as technical, design, artistic, and psychological. When in doubt, contact us! We're always looking for innovative thinkers!

Requirements

International applicants will be required to arrange for their NZ student visa after an offer of a place. Please check http://www.immigration.govt.nz for information about what type of visa might be most suitable and the process of acquiring it. The university has various types of accommodation available on campus. Please check http://www.canterbury.ac.nz/future-students/accommodation/ for information about the options and prices. International students should also consult the International Student website at http://www.canterbury.ac.nz/international/ to learn about the cost of living, fees, and insurances.
