The Master of Information Technology offered by University of Technology Sydney is a 2 years full-time program that offers a wide range of specializations, from Business Information Systems to Data Analytics to Software Development. I will specialize in Software Development which aims to develop a thorough understanding of the advanced concepts of software development in a commercial and industrial environment.
As a Bachelor of Computer, I am aware that every company demands a software developer who is highly skilled, not only in theories, but also in practices. Therefore, it is important to obtain the qualifications in an institution whose goal is corresponding to the need of the companies.
University of Technology Sydney has an excellent reputation with its practice-oriented courses geared towards preparing graduates for careers in industry field. Furthermore, the university's deep connection with companies from a huge range of sectors allows various industry practitioners to share their extensive knowledge and expertise with students. Gaining further education from University of Technology Sydney will help me in building my career as a lead software developer in an IT company, as nowadays there is a growing number of companies and startups in my home country. Plus, it will also provide me with an insight into how the industries work and what value they are looking in graduates.
This program comprises of seven core subjects, six specialization subjects and three subjects combined from elective choice block and an IT project. One of the option for the IT project is Industry Project, in which students are required to undertake research on an industry based problem or scenario and develop an appropriate systems solution. Based on my commencement session, this project will start in March in the second year, and the related industry or project will be arranged concurrently.
