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. You will critically review current research and apply research methods that are appropriate to IT discipline domains. 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. The Master of Information Technology will develop a breadth of knowledge and deepen your understanding across varying aspects of IT. Completing one of the eight majors will give you specialist knowledge in that field:
