Master of Science in Information Technology

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

A Master of Science in Information Technology (abbreviated M.Sc. IT, MSc IT or MSIT) is a type of postgraduate academic master's degree usually offered in a University's College of Business and in the recent years in integrated Information Science & Technology colleges. The MSIT degree is designed for those managing information technology, especially the information systems development process. The MSIT degree is functionally equivalent to a Master of Information Systems Management, which is one of several specialized master's degree programs recognized by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).

A joint committee of Association for Information Systems (AIS) and Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) members develop a model curriculum for the Master of Science in Information Systems (MSIT). The most recent version of the MSIS Model Curriculum was published in 2006.

The course of study is concentrated around the Information Systems discipline. The core courses are (typically) Systems analysis, Systems design, Data Communications, Database design, Project management and Security. The degree typically includes coursework in both computer science and business skills, but the core curriculum might depend on the school and result in other degrees and specializations, including:

  • Master of Science (Information Technology) M.Sc.(I.T)
  • Master in Information Science (MIS)
  • Master of Science in Information Systems Management (MISM)
  • Master of Science in Information Technology (MSIT)
  • Master of Computer Science (MCS)
  • Master of Science in Information Systems (MSIS)
  • Master of Science in Management of Information Technology (M.S. in MIT)
  • Master of Information Technology (M.I.T.)
  • Master of IT (M. IT or MIT)[1] in Denmark
  • Master of Computer Applications (MCA)
  • Candidatus/candidata informationis technologiæ (Cand. it.) in Denmark

Universities[edit]

  • "Makhanlal Chaturvedi National University of Journalism & Communication", Bhopal offers two year full-time M.Sc.(I.T) program.
  • Particularly in India one program called the MSIT Program, works in collaboration with Carnegie Mellon and the state government of Andhra Pradesh to offer a multi university inter disciplinary master's degree at several universities including IIIT Hyderabad, JNTU-Hyderabad, JNTU-Kakinada and in JNTU-Ananthapur.[2]
  • Pune University Under Computer Science Department provides Master of Computer Applications(MCA) degree. [3]

In Sri Lanka, University of Colombo School of Computing offers a Master of Information Technology (MIT) program. This institute also offers another two MIT programs which are specialized in e-Learning and multimedia technologies.

In the United States, graduate programs for this field of study that confer Master of Science (M.S.) degrees may be named differently across numerous universities; some examples include:
