This degree is by coursework and research, using mainly self study materials for the coursework - there are no lectures. It is a two year conversion programme aimed at students without a degree in computer science or information technology/systems. The ideal candidate for this programme is someone who uses information technology in his or her job, but who has no formal university qualification in IT. A non-IT honours degree, or equivalent, is the minimum requirement for entry into the MIT course.
This Web site serves as an introduction to anyone considering enrolling in the course.
Note: If any of your previous degrees are in computer science, MIT is not for you. You may be interested in our research-only Masters or PhD degrees; please consult the Postgraduate Degree information on the Department's website for more on these options.
