    Master of Information Technology

    About

    If you're an established or aspiring information technology (IT) professional the Master of Information Technology will expand your professional knowledge and skills in information technology (IT). Accredited by the Australian Computer Society, you will benefit from a highly practical course that meets international standards of ICT allowing you to develop your career globally.

    During the course, you will study a common first term made up of four units covering project management, introductory programming, ICT services management and information systems analysis and design. Following completion of your first four units, you will begin studying in your chosen major: networks and information security; mobile application development; and software design and development. Tailor the Master of Information Technology even further to suit your interests and career goals with the option to select one of multiple industry-driven minors:

    • artificial intelligence
    • information systems and analysis
    • internet-of-things
    • mobile application development
    • networks and information security
    • project management
    • software design and development.

    Minors cover new technologies such as blockchain, neural networks, machine learning, internet-of-things, sustainable practices with IT, and big data. The project management minor provides a unique opportunity to complete a minor in project management and study set elective units to graduate with both the Masters degree and a Graduate Certificate in Project Management (within the standard two years).

    You will gain experience using the latest software tools and techniques while having the opportunity to gain exposure to real-world industry case studies based on the experience of practitioner academics. Cement your skills alongside industry with the option of completing a 12-week internship in the final term of study or capstone project.

    You will learn from specialist teaching staff including academics with international research reputations in artificial intelligence, internet-of-things and cyber security, current IT practitioners, and academics recognised for their teaching excellence.

    Enjoy the flexibility to study online or on-campus, with full-time and part-time study options available. Plus, take advantage of CQUni’s three terms across the year to study the Master of Information Technology, when and how it suits you. The flexible course structure also allows you to exit after completion of four units with the Graduate Certificate of Information Technology, or the Graduate Diploma of Information Technology after completion of eight units.
