The Master of Information Technology (MIT) is an 18 month full-time programme that aims to enable students who have a bachelors’ degree in IT or computing to achieve a post graduate level qualification in information technology.
The MIT programme has been designed to produce IT graduates who are able to think critically and have a number of high level skills in IT field that can be applied in a wide range of IT situations.
Riki Waikato, Bachelor of Computing Systems Graduate
After a great five years of travelling and working overseas, Riki Waikato was ready to come home to Hawke’s Bay and study for a qualification.
“The jobs I had weren’t amazing,” the 30-year-old says of bartending in Edinburgh and para-legal work for a Sydney law firm. “I didn’t have a huge interest in them.”
Riki loves working as a software developer at Red Jungle, however. The Ahuriri-based company offered him a paid position while he was on a semester-long internship in the final year of his EIT studies
I started working at EIT in 1990 and worked for several years as the IT Services Manager. Later, I joined the computing school, teaching on the Bachelor of Computing Systems when it launched at EIT in 2000. My teaching currently includes IT Management and E-Business on the BCS degree and Strategic IT Management on EIT's new postgraduate Diploma of IT.
All computing degree and specialist diploma programmes include an industry based project providing those nearing graduation with an opportunity to work with industry either as an intern in an IT company or working with a commercial organisation on a specific project.
A purpose-built Information Technology Complex is located at the Hawkes Bay Campus. There are nine networked computer labs with 24 student workstation stations in each. The rooms are environmentally controlled, with data show equipment in each room. There are specific labs for software development, hardware, multimedia and a room for project work. The facility also has a 50-seat tiered lecturer theatre.
