Ne öğreneceğim?

Almost every enterprise today needs the skills of network and data professionals, coders, system architects, web developers and other technically trained professionals. With this explosion in careers comes a demand for smart, industry-ready graduates ready to make the most of technology within the business.

To meet the ongoing demand for talent, the Auckland ICT Graduate School (a joint initiative between the University of Auckland and the University of Waikato) has developed two new postgraduate programmes – the Master of Information Technology (MInfoTech) and Postgraduate Certificate in Information Technology (PGCertInfoTech).

Whether you have successfully studied business, the arts or sciences, the PGCertInfoTech will build on your existing critical thinking and communication skills, equipping you with specialised knowledge in the fast-growing ICT sector. Completing this intensive programme will equip you with up-to-date-knowledge of modern ICT practice to complement the skills you have already developed.

Programme Details

The PGCertInfoTech is one trimester long (60 points) and is designed for students who already have a bachelor’s degree or equivalent in another subject. You will study two papers full-time: COMPX568 - Programming for Industry and COMPX569 - Programming with Web Technologies

The PGCertInfoTech also provides the ideal bridge to the MInfoTech. You can complete both of these programmes (240 points) in 1.5 – 2 years depending on when you start.
