The Master of Information Technology (MIT) program enables graduates from disciplines other than information technology to get the expertise required to operate in the sector.
Students who enter the Master of Information Technology program with relevant undergraduate degrees (such as a bachelor's in computer science or information technology) may be eligible to substitute one or more core courses with others.
Along with this, students who complete the course will have a solid foundation in all of the important and essential areas of IT, as well as the opportunity to specialize in and gain in-depth knowledge in particular IT domains.
The persistent and widening skills gap in IT, particularly in the areas of computer networking and cyber security, was the reason MIT was founded.
Besides that, students have the option of advanced courses that concentrate on critical enterprise network or cyber security issues, and they can graduate with a concentration in any of these areas.
Two electives are available at MIT, one of which may not be in information technology. The course's final assignment, the Applied Project, ensures that students may demonstrate their knowledge and skill application competency to current and/or future employers.
