Master of Information Technology

The Master of Information Technology (MInfoTech) is a new degree (jointly awarded with the University of Auckland) which is designed to help students become "industry ready".

Setting the Master of Information Technology apart from more theoretical qualifications is the high degree of business enterprise and project-based learning it demands. One whole semester will be devoted to an internship with an industry partner, working under supervision on a real-world project. Teaching takes place on our Hamilton campus and the internship can be completed in Tauranga.

180-point programme

If you have an undergraduate degree in Computer Science (or equivalent) you can apply for the 180-point programme. A combination of courses are offered that focus on improving ICT skills as well as communication and critical thinking skills.

120-point programme

If you have gained the equivalent to an Honours degree in Computer Science you can apply for the 120-point MInfoTech.

Postgraduate Certificate in Information Technology

We also offer the Postgraduate Certificate in Information Technology at our Hamilton campus. One semester long and designed for students who already have a bachelor's degree or equivalent in another subject, this programme offers the ideal bridge to the MInfoTech.
