Why study the Master of Information Technology?

The Master of Information Technology has a strong focus on information systems and database technology. These systems are used and help run organisations of all kinds. About half of the information technology industry in Australia is in this area, and those people who intend to use the Master of Information Technology to leverage their previous skills will use information systems and database technology within their own industries.
The Master of Information Technology is an ideal choice for a student who does not have a previous IT degree and wishes to enhance their current discipline areas through specialist IT knowledge.
