"I feel like the support from the University either personally or from the University in general is really great.  I have an accounting background and thought maybe it's good to have some kind of IT background to compliment my accounting experience, so I can go more into the career path way I want to pursue as a Business Analyst"

Ziyi (Gabby) Zhang, Master of Information Technology and Systems
Due to the ongoing response to COVID-19, online study may replace some or all of your on-campus classes. We'll be sure to keep you informed of any changes.
The Master of Information Technology and Systems (MITS) provides a wide breadth of knowledge of varying aspects of information technology (IT) and information systems (IS). The MITS provides students with a previous tertiary qualification in any discipline area with the knowledge, understanding and skills to enable them to deal effectively with advanced issues involving IT and IS.

The MITS provides non-ICT students with broad knowledge and understanding of fundamental information and communication technology concepts and principles. It also enables all students to select significant areas for in-depth study, from a range of advanced IT and IS areas, to provide students with knowledge, understanding and experiences that transcend technologies and are robust over time so that students are well-placed to deal with ongoing, rapid changes in the IT and IS fields.

Studies in the various advanced areas of ICT allow students to develop a professional, responsible, self-reflective and critical attitude to the practice of ICT.

Note:  Students who commenced this course prior to 2016, should refer to the course schedules relevant to their year of entry.

MITS graduates should be ICT professionals with the abilities and skills to:

  • adapt and apply techniques for acquiring, converting, transmitting, storing, managing and analysing data, information and knowledge;
  • select and effectively apply processes, methodologies, tools, research skills and techniques to analyze, model, develop, and manage ICT products and services;
  • explain and adapt appropriate ICT to support business processes and decision making to help an organisation achieve its objectives;
  • evaluate and communicate the likely utility of emerging or advanced ICT to an individual or organization;
  • apply abstraction and critical thinking to a problem, identify and define the ICT requirements, apply knowledge of advanced ICT principles and technical skills to develop and evaluate strengths and weaknesses of potential solutions.

MITS graduates should acquire attitudes needed by an ICT professional to:

  • be an effective team member;
  • take initiative and work independently;
  • communicate effectively at a professional level;
  • continue lifelong learning; and
  • adhere to codes of professional conduct and practice.

The MITS provides an optional opportunity for high achieving students to qualify for higher research
