Overview

Master of Information Technology and Systems

The Master of Information Technology and Systems (MITS) provides a wide breadth of knowledge of varying aspects of information technology (IT) and information systems (IS). 

The MITS provides students with a previous tertiary qualification in any discipline area with the knowledge, understanding and skills to enable them to deal effectively with advanced issues involving IT and IS.

The MITS provides non-ICT students with broad knowledge and understanding of fundamental information and communication technology concepts and principles. 

It also enables all students to select significant areas for in-depth study, from a range of advanced IT and IS areas, to provide students with knowledge, understanding and experiences that transcend technologies. 

 They are robust over time so that students are well-placed to deal with ongoing, rapid changes in the IT and IS fields.

Studies in the various advanced areas of ICT allow students to develop a professional, responsible, self-reflective and critical attitude to the practice of ICT.

Five technical specialisations are offered that align with in-demand ICT career outcomes:

  • Cloud Computing and Internet of Things,
  • Artificial Intelligence and Data Intelligence,
  • Cybersecurity,
  • Information Systems and
  • Information Technology.

MITS graduates should be ICT professionals with the abilities and skills to:

  • Communicate technical and non-technical information proficiently to a variety of stakeholders in ICT professional practice
  • Adapt ICT processes, tools, and techniques to efficiently solve complex and diverse problems incorporating best practice and ICT industry standards
  • Construct efficient ICT solutions ensuring a quality user experience using peer collaboration and research in their area of specialisation.
  • Propose and critique effective solutions to complex scenarios considering economic, social, legal, and ethical factors and consequences for individuals, organisations, and society relevant to their area of specialisation.

The MITS provides an optional opportunity for high achieving students to qualify for higher research.
