MSc Information Technology

Background Information


The aim of the MSc in IT program is to equip students with advanced knowledge and skills in various areas of information technology. It focuses on providing a comprehensive understanding of IT principles, methodologies, and technologies, and aims to develop students’ expertise in specialized IT domains such web technologies, mobile computing, Machine learning, Human computer interaction, data management, cyber security and cloud computing etc., Additionally, the course will provide students with the core knowledge and skills required to work within the IT industry, using software development tools and techniques to extend and enhance the knowledge and skills of non-computing graduates. Again, the content is complemented by practical work undertaken in state-of-the-art facilities, using tools and techniques to allow you to match software solutions to the needs of businesses. This practical element will increase your theoretical understanding by developing real-world problem-solving skills, enhancing your employability as a graduate.



The objectives of the programme are to:

  1. to enhance students’ technical competencies in areas such as programming, database management, networking, cybersecurity, cloud computing and data analytics.
  2. to equip students with the skills needed to design, develop, and manage IT systems and solutions.
  3. to help students develop analytical and critical thinking abilities, this will enable them to analyze complex problems, identify patterns, and develop innovative solutions using appropriate IT methodologies and tools.
  4. to help students to demonstrable ability to provide IT solutions to holistic business problems.
  5. to help students to demonstrable understanding of IT professional ethics and digital globalization management.
  6. to foster a research-oriented mindset among students.
  7. produce high caliber of graduates with professional skills in the development of educational software, employ technology-oriented pedagogy for teaching and learning
  8. develop student’s technical competency in systems deployment and management
