Study IT at RMIT


For your postgraduate studies in IT at RMIT you could consider the

Master of Computer Science. We’ll take a look at the second program – RMIT’s Master of Business with a specialisation in Information Technology.



Course overview – About the program


The Master of Business Information Technology at RMIT is a cutting-edge postgraduate degree in Melbourne.



This program:

  • • addresses IT and Communications-Technology applications as they apply to business organisations.


  • • is supported by leading-edge research addressing emerging IT issues.


  • • qualifies graduates to act as catalysts for change within IT focused, networked or digitised organisations.

Advanced Standing – options if you have IT experience, and if you haven’t


There are two streams to choose – either with or without ‘advanced standing’. These two different routes to your MBIT degree depend on how much IT experience you have when you start your program. The graphic below shows how studies in the two streams compare – have a look, but for full details come and see us at YEC.

What do you need to enter this program?


The main IELTS requirement is 6.5 with no subtest score below 6.0. You should have a Bachelor degree (equivalent to a 4 year Australian BA).


Career – Who are the graduates?


Professional accreditation of your degree is the first thing to look at: the RMIT MBIT degree is accredited with the Australian Computer Society (ACS) and it has international recognition via the Seoul Accord.



RMIT is one of Australia’s very best Universities for graduate employment, and IT graduates succeed in both public and private organisations, including these roles:



  • IT manager or consultant資訊技術經理或顧問

Queensland University of Technology (QUT)

Queensland: Brisbane


About QUT (CRICOS 00213J)


Queensland University of Technology is a large and very successful modern Australian university based in Brisbane. QUT has a student population of around 40,000, of which international students make up about 15%.



Study IT at QUT


Studying IT at postgraduate level, you’ll enter the QUT Faculty of Science and Engineering. Your masters program is taught at Gardens Point, which is right in Brisbane city centre – but Garden’s Point is also a leafy university campus next to the city’s main river.

At QUT you could join the Master of Information Technology.

在昆士蘭科技大學攻讀資訊科技研究所,您將在科學與工程學院中進行研究。您的碩士課程將在Gardens Point校區,位在布里斯本市中心,布里斯本河畔旁。



QUT Master of Information Technology


QUT’s Master of IT is designed to meet the demands of experienced students and the needs of those with less experience in IT from their Bachelor degree. If you’re already experienced in the field then the Master of IT creates necessary space for your professional development. That could mean expanding on your existing wisdom to become a more flexible IT professional, or deepening your specialised know-how in a particular area of IT.



QUT recognises that some of those who have more IT experience are likely to have more focused goals. If you are looking for a specific major in one area of IT, consider the following majors available at QUT:


IT Business商用資訊科技

  • • Digital Environments 數位化環境
  • • Enterprise Systems企業系統
  • • Executive Information Practice資訊執行實踐


IT Management資訊科技管理

  • • Information Management資訊管理
  • • Network Management網路管理


IT Gaming遊戲資訊科技

  • • Games Design 遊戲設計
  • • Games Production遊戲製作


IT Library Science and Databases圖書館科學與資料庫資訊科技

  • • Library and Information Science圖書館與資訊科學


IT Software資訊科技軟體

  • • Software Architecture軟體架構
  • • Security安全


The options at QUT are even more flexible than this. The Masters program is designed so that you can either opt to specialise with a course major, or build your Master of IT without majoring in any one area. Students who don’t choose a major can create a Masters degree that gives them a wider range of studies from all of the postgraduate IT units available. It’s the most flexible path to choose and you will qualify with evidence of a broad IT education.


Course snapshot – a quick look at course units

What you could study – taken from over 60 varied study options!



User Experience is a course unit focusing on understanding users, on how they experience technology, and on how this impacts the theory and practice of design in digital environments. On this course, your own experience as an enthusiastic user will help by enabling you to evaluate different technologies from your own point of view. But you’ll also deal with other users, engaging them with and without technology. One goal will be to build up a sense of how different methods may allow you to measure their experience of digital environments more effectively, leading to better digital design.



Software Development is a study unit to build your understanding of how software development depends on object technologies and programming techniques, as well as an array of code libraries that are developed by third party designers but which then become very widely used in the industry. This unit starts by recognising that today’s software designers must be competent in such areas as Integrated Development Environments, unit testing frameworks, automated and continuous build tools and versioning systems – and the unit aims to give you these skills.



Advanced Game Design allows the student wishing for a career in the Gaming industry to raise their level of theory and practical ability. One of the key goals is training students to work successfully at the cutting edge of new Gaming design. Advanced Game Design should teach you to identify problems, propose solutions and implement the changes, giving you a comprehensive understanding of the design process. This will include how to plan a task within a game, and how to create a reward for successful completion by the player. You’ll have sufficient skills to design an entire game level. Students must consider the characters that will appear in the game – and how their actions and speech provide feedback to the user, helping them see what actions they should take for the game to progress.



What do you need to enter this program?


The main IELTS requirement is 6.5 with no subtest score below 6.0.


But if you have a lower IELTS score then you may still be able to start your Masters! That’s because with an overall score of 6.0 and subtest scores above 5.0, you could be accepted onto the program by making some extra language study (known as ‘communication units’) part of your Masters degree. You will complete this study – as elective course units – at the QUT International College in your first semester.



If you don’t have a Bachelors degree in Information Technology, you can start your Masters by choosing three Basic Elective course units. Come and see us at YEC for full details!
