Course structure

Course requirements

The course can be studied in either of two ways:

(1) by 100 per cent research

(2) by a combination of coursework and research. The coursework component can be up to 12 points (15 per cent) of fifth-year units from the Caulfield School of Information Technology information management and systems stream. The choice of units must be approved by the head of school.

Each candidate is required to undertake supervised research in an area of information management or information systems resulting in the completion of a major thesis. A principal and an associate supervisor will be appointed and the candidate is required to maintain regular contact with the supervisors. Candidates are required to attend and contribute to the school research-in-progress seminar series.

The overall result for the degree will be determined by combining the graded thesis and the results of any coursework units that have been approved for MIMS(Research) study.

Students have a maximum of two years (full-time basis) to complete this course.
