Course content

The Masters in Information Technology (MIT) is aimed at graduates of any discipline and is designed to produce graduates who have core technical knowledge combined with a strong understanding of business environments and of how people behave in a workplace context. With these skills, they are well placed to make significant contributions to organisations across technical and business boundaries, and to increase their potential to advance in consulting and management roles.

The taught modules are drawn from three distinct subject areas: Information Technology, Business and Behavioural Science. These include: Programming, Databases, IT Strategy, Software Engineering, Financial Management, Industrial Sociology and Change Management. There are also a number of modules which are designed specifically to link the three major themes of the programme: e-Business Marketing, User Centred Design, and Strategic Management.

Students also undertake a service learning project which puts the skills they have learned in class into practice for a not-for profit organisation. During the final three months of the course, students write a minor thesis on a topic which links the taught modules with their application in the workplace.
