Course details

Summary

The Master of Information Technology (MIT) is a Level 9 programme with a minimum of 180 or 240 credits. It enables students who have completed a Bachelors’ degree in Information Technology/Computing to achieve a postgraduate level qualification in Information Technology.

The MIT programme has been designed to produce IT graduates who are able to think critically and have a number of high-level skills in the IT field that can be applied in a wide range of IT situations.

Outline

The principles underlying the design of the MIT are similar to those of the Postgraduate Diploma in Information Technology, the Graduate Diploma in Information Technology and the Bachelor of Computing Systems, with the understanding that those entering the MIT will have completed a Postgraduate Diploma in Information Technology or have already completed an IT degree with a grade point average of at least a B.
