English Language Requirement

Overall IELTS (Academic) band score of 6.0 with no individual band score less than 6.0, or equivalent.

Academic Entry Requirements

Successful completion of Australian Bachelor degree or Overseas Equivalent.


Students without a background in IT can undertake this program and gain both the background IT knowledge plus the research skills to go on to further research-oriented study.

Upon completion students will have a broad understanding of Information Technology plus a strong understanding of academic research in the discipline.

This program has a course work component that is comparable to a graduate diploma in Information Technology that focuses on Software Engineering and Enterprise Systems Technology. Additionally, the course work provides an exploration of required research skills and methodology training to undertake a career in research.

This program also requires students to undertake an individual academic research project that is equivalent in size and depth to an Australian Honours thesis. This project will be carried out by working with a research supervisor. This project will contribute new knowledge to the chosen field.

Career opportunities


This program is primarily aimed at providing a pathway for students to go on to further study in the form of a PhD. This will allow them to pursue a career in academia, or as a researcher in industry such as Google, Microsoft, CSIRO, or a University. Course work within the program will also open up possibilities in industry depending on the courses they select. Selections made primarily from the Enterprise systems stream of courses could enable a career in cloud computing, mobility, data warehousing and business intelligence. Selections made primarily from the Software Engineering stream of courses could enable a career in security, defence, education, aerospace, health, business and finance.
