About Master of Information Technology at University of Waikato

The course's main feature is the industry internship (FMCS596) paper which gives you industry experience for one whole semester.  As an intern you will be mentored and supported by your employer and University supervisor, as you work on a real-world problem in an industry team setting.

The MInfoTech was developed as part of the Auckland ICT Graduate School, a joint initiative between the University of Waikato and the University of Auckland, to develop industry-ready ICT experts. The aim of the programme is to meet the explosive demand for highly-skilled network and data professionals, coders, system architects, web developers and other work-ready ICT professionals. Technology is the fastest growing sector in New Zealand and with a $1.3 trillion projected growth in the global ICT industry from 2013-2020, the MInfoTech prepares you to make the most of the significant opportunities available in this industry.

Our aim is to ensure you move beyond the classroom and into professional work situations with a full complement of employable IT skills.

The Postgraduate Certificate in Information Technology (PGCertInfoTech) provides the ideal pathway to the Master of Information Technology (MInfoTech).
