Information technology underpins almost every aspect of modern society, from phones to MP3 players to dashboard navigation systems, from ATMs to robotic assembly lines to satellite communication, from online booking systems to banking to instant messaging. Technology is the driver of changes in the twenty-first century and an opportunity for you to shape the future.
The range of majors offered opens opportunities for graduates across the IT sector. There is strong industry demand in traditional areas such as networks, security and enterprise systems, as well as an increase in the need for specialists in the emerging fields of data science and human-computer interaction.
The course aims to prepare students for work in a specialist IT area through a program of study that balances theoretical content, project-based experiences and industry-oriented perspectives. Ongoing communication with the Australian Computer Society—the professional accreditation body for IT professionals—ensures that our degree meets professional standards and is able to respond to changes within the industry.
If you hold an undergraduate degree in a field other than IT, and you are interested in developing the specialist knowledge and skills to succeed in senior IT-related positions, then this course could be for you. If you choose to complete the Master of Information Technology without a specialisation, you will develop a breadth of knowledge and deepen your understanding across varying aspects of IT. Alternatively, completing one of the eight majors will give you specialist knowledge in that field:
During your studies, you will experience a range of learning approaches, including:
Careers include business analyst, systems analyst, systems manager, data communications specialist, network administrator, network manager, database manager, electronic commerce developer, Internet professional, multimedia designer, senior programmer, software engineer or systems programmer.
Following successful accreditation by the Australian Computer Society (ACS)—which is expected in 2015—graduates will satisfy the knowledge requirements for membership of ACS at professional level.
The masters courses provide a pathway to follow on with a research degree (research masters, professional doctorate or PhD). Students who successfully complete IFN600 Research Based Practice and a 48 credit point research project, are encouraged to apply for enrolment in a doctoral program. IN20 provides direct pathways for entry to a PhD program as well as to the Faculty's professional doctorate, Doctor of Information Technology.
