Attendance information

The Master of Information Technology is offered full time over four trimesters or part-time over eight trimesters, in an on-campus mode. A small number of courses will be offered in online mode. At Nathan campus, some courses will be offered in late afternoon and evening time slots for the benefit of part-time students.

Work-integrated learning

Students must complete a 20 credit point Work Integrated Learning (WIL) course in their final year. WIL has been designed to integrate students into the workplace through the completion of an industry-based work, which is designed to benefit both the student and the industry partner. WIL can be taken as either a Placement or team-based project. With Placement, students are placed with an industry partner where students attend their placement 2 days a week to produce the deliverable(s) for that organisation. With team project, students are assigned into a team to work on a project from an industry partner. With either choice, students use their placement or team project as a vehicle to apply what they have learned in their program and demonstrate independent and life-long learning on the job.

The inclusion of work-integrated learning in this program demonstrates Griffith's commitment to preparing its graduates for success in their working life.
