This unit should only be commenced when the student has determined they are not on the research stream of the MITS


This unit is designed to give ICT research students an appreciation of the significance of research and provide students with research skills, knowledge and understandings that will enable them to conduct their own research in a rigorous manner. The unit will encourage critical understanding of qualitative and quantitative approaches in research and explore the research process.
