Master of Information Technology
The quality of teaching at UNSW is very high, and access to cutting-edge research happening right on campus keeps the study interesting.
The Master of Information Technology is suitable for graduates with a background in Science or Engineering who wish to acquire a solid knowledge of computing and information technology over 2 years.
It is also suitable for graduates from a Computing or Information Technology degree who wish to broaden, deepen or update their knowledge; such students may qualify for sufficient advanced standing that they can complete the program in 1 year full-time
Information technology provides students with the skills to use today’s technology as well as to create the technology of tomorrow. Graduates are trained to anticipate future requirements and develop applications, frameworks, products and services to meet those needs in areas such as networking, data mining, robotics and internet services.
The Master of Information Technology povides students with a broad IT education and specialised knowledge that enables them to work in a range of positions. It is suitable for students with minimal prior computing experience, or students with a computing-related bachelor degree who want to gain a broader understanding or specialise in an area.
The Graduate Diploma of Information Technology is intended for students with little (if any) prior computing experience or students with some computing knowhow seeking a broader understanding. It consists of 12 courses selected from across the Master of Information Technology program, with a focus on the Advanced Disciplinary Knowledge Courses and a research option. Students may also choose up to two majors, while Two electives can be chosen from outside the school.
