Internet development expertise is becoming indispensible, as few businesses or enterprises can afford to ignore the transition to web-enabled business models. This program serves two purposes:
- to provide hands-on, industry relevant, web-oriented software skills to non-IT professionals; and
- to modernise an existing IT professional’s skill base.
There are three components of the master degree: the first is the study of four core courses that comprise the graduate certificate; the second component is another four courses for a graduate diploma, and comprises web-oriented elective courses; the final four courses complete the master degree and include specialist postgraduate level web electives, introducing you to the cutting edge of research and development.
The emphasis is on developing graduates who are life-long learners in this dynamic field. The Master of Technology (Internet and Web Computing) is accredited at the professional level by the Australian Computer Society.
Graduates can work in diverse fields including web site development and maintenance, e-commerce applications, web databases, web server technology, web systems management, web project analysis and design, e-business software design and development, web integration officer, mobile phone applications and the internet games industry.
Students must complete five core courses (Stage A), three electives (Stage B), and four advanced electives (Stage C) to satisfy the requirements of the program.
- Stage A covers the fundamentals of the Internet and the World Wide Web, including HTML, SQL, and a scripting language (PHP). Three of the core courses are a sequence of programming courses. Upon completion of four courses, of which at least three are core courses, students are eligible to take out the intermediate award for the Graduate Certificate in Internet and Web Computing (GC040).
- Stage B covers Java programming and selected elective courses in areas of interest. After Stage B, are eligible to take out the intermediate award for the Graduate Diploma in Internet and Web Computing (GD059).
- Stage C focuses on advanced topics, and affords the opportunity to study Internet and Web Computing at the advanced level.
