|Core Participation Requirements:||
The Master of Information Technology welcomes applications from students with disabilities. It is University and degree policy to take all reasonable steps to minimise the impact of disability upon academic study, and reasonable adjustments will be made to enhance a student’s participation in the degree.
The Master of Information Technology requires all students to enrol in subjects where they will require:
Students must possess behavioural and social attributes that enable them to participate in a complex learning environment. Students are required to take responsibility for their own participation and learning. They also contribute to the learning of other students in collaborative learning environments, demonstrating interpersonal skills and an understanding of the needs of other students. Assessment may include the outcomes of tasks completed in collaboration with other students.
There may be additional inherent academic requirements for some subjects, and these requirements are listed within the description of the requirements for each of these subjects.
Students who feel their disability will impact on meeting this requirement are encouraged to discuss this matter with the relevant Subject Coordinator and the Disability Liaison Unit: http://www.services.unimelb.edu.au/disability/
Graduates may progress to a wide range of other graduate coursework degrees as well as research higher degree programs, including the Doctor of Philosophy.
Graduates have a specialisation in computing, distributed computing, health IT or spatial IT, as well as a solid foundation in programming, algorithms, complexity, network programming, and database systems, project management, and advanced information technology. Elective subjects are available in areas as diverse as bioinformatics, database systems, enterprise computing, geomatics, information systems, machine intelligence, programming languages, project and change management, security, and software engineering.
Provisionally accredited by the Australian Computer Society. Full accreditation will be granted when the first cohort of students graduate.
