Masters of Information Technology

Course Overview

Information Technology is a critical component of modern life, and is essential to the communications that support modern society. The blurring of traditional boundaries between the professions has seen a growing need for those involved in the acquisition, dissemination and preservation of information in all its formats to have a broad understanding of the technical infrastructure supporting these roles, as well as an in-depth knowledge of how people access information and the tools necessary to ensure this is done as efficiently and effectively as possible.

New applications of Information Technology are constantly emerging; different applications are linked together to form a complex computing environment. There is now an urgent demand for highly skilled Information Technology professionals with diverse specialisations in areas that include business and management processes, and the design and development of software systems. This demand is forecast to increase both in Uganda and worldwide.
