Founded in the mid-1990s, Melbourne Institute of Technology is a tertiary educational institution in Australia. With campuses in Melbourne and Sydney, it offers a range of academic programs in Business, Accounting, Management, Marketing, Information Technology, Computer Networking, and Telecommunications Engineering, ranging from undergraduate (university pathway Diploma and Bachelor) through to postgraduate degrees.[1]

Melbourne Institute of Technology is an affiliated institute of the Federation University Australia and offers a range of FedUni undergraduate and postgraduate programs at its Melbourne and Sydney campuses.[2] FedUni resulted from merging the University of Ballarat and the Monash University, Gippsland campus. It is the first regional, multi-sector university in Australia.[3] The partnership between FedUni and MIT involves FedUni controlling the quality of the courses and conferring the qualifications, while MIT provides the facilities, lecturers, tutors and student services. All academic staff at MIT are approved to teach by FedUni. Students enrolled in FedUni courses at MIT, attend MIT campuses as FedUni enrolled students and upon successful completion are awarded FedUni degrees.
