Information technology affects all aspects of modern life and there is a worldwide shortage of information technology professionals. Its applications now include, not only commerce and science, but also health, education, engineering, transport, government, entertainment, sport, and social networking. It has become so complex that only well-educated professionals are capable of developing and applying information technology systems in modern organisations. Even professionals in other disciplines need a sound understanding of information technology to perform their own jobs efficiently and effectively.
This program provides a comprehensive, modern postgraduate education in the principles and practice of information technology, with an emphasis on one of the following specialisations:
The Master of Information Technology is offered full time over three semesters or part-time over six semesters, in an on-campus mode. A small number of courses will be offered in online mode with weekly on-campus clinics. At Nathan campus, some courses will be offered in late afternoon and evening time slots for the benefit of part-time students.
At Gold Coast, most courses will be offered in normal daytime slots. At both Gold Coast and Nathan campuses, some courses will be offered in summer semester intensive mode for the benefit of students wishing to complete their programs more quickly.
To be classed as a full-time student, you are required to enrol in a minimum number of credit points each semester. This may affect your entitlement to Centrelink benefits. The minimum credit points for full-time enrolment in this program are 30 credit points.
Graduates of the Master of IT program will be prepared for a wide range of senior employment opportunities in the information technology industry.
The indicative annual tuition fee is calculated based on a standard full-time study load which is usually 80 credit points (two full-time semesters).
The indicative annual tuition fee is based on current conditions and available data and should only be used as a guide. These fees are reviewed annually and are subject to change.
