Why study Information Technology at Flinders?

  • The postgraduate courses in IT are small, intimate and focused on the needs and the future of each individual student. We like to concentrate on quality and personal attention to your needs – and watch you thrive.
  • The Science and Engineering Faculty is very experienced in dealing with part-time students and provides a support base that caters to the onerous demands of working while studying part time. Full-time students also benefit from our approach. Computer facilities are available remotely and are strongly backed by a 24/7 help desk. Lectures are recorded and streamed for students to use at their convenience.

How can I use Information Technology in my career?

Think of any career path and you’ll find an IT influence. The manager with IT fluency is the manager with the capacity to make the IT systems work to the business’s advantage. The Masters graduate will be able to contribute professionally to the management of an organisation’s IT infrastructure. These are courses for professionals who work with IT at a high level rather than courses for IT professionals.

The courses are designed to serve the future of the students who complete them. Skills in many IT areas are in short supply and these courses open many doors to many possibilities. Long-standing graduates in computing may choose the Diploma or Masters as a means of upgrading and extending their knowledge and skills in an area that has dramatically changed in recent years. If you have a lot of interaction with IT in your work and just want to communicate better with IT people, the Certificate course might change your working life (for the better of course).

The Masters in IT is accredited by the Australian Computer Society
