Undergraduate IT Curriculum Design

I lead, in conjunction with Dr. Shankia Karunasekera, the redesign of Melbourne's Undergraduate IT Courses.

The University of Melbourne has redesigned its undergraduate IT programs, with two new majors launching in 2012, and flexible IT pathways leading to graduate study and exciting careers. IT students at Melbourne will find themselves immersed in Australia's most exciting technology precinct, home to Australia's first life sciences supercomputer and world-leading IT research across areas such as broadband, cloud computing, social media and e-security. At the undergraduate level, students have the flexibility to study IT in three ways: as a major in their undergraduate degree, as a breadth sequence of subjects taken outside the core area of their Bachelor degree, or as a Diploma of Informatics, an additional IT qualification alongside their undergraduate course.

At the graduate level IT studies can be completed at the Masters by Coursework level, or can be studied via research, either at the Masters or PhD level. Some of the programs are designed to cater for students with varied study backgrounds, while other courses require students to have completed specific IT studies at an undergraduate level. There are currently 12 Masters level programs in IT offered at the University, including Information Systems, Information Technology, Spatial Information Science, Distributed Computing, Software Systems Engineering, Geomatics, Mechatronics, Software, Bioinformatics, Computer Science, and Geographic Information Technology. More information about the IT courses at The University of Melbourne can be found at the Melbourne School of Information website http://msi.unimelb.edu.au/.
