Description

The Master in Information Technology (MIT) program is a non-thesis graduate program for professionals and educators who want to advance their knowledge and skills in Information Technology. Subsequently, the program aims to provide and equip graduate students with the competency used in today’s Business-IT environment. The MIT curriculum of the department is composed of thirty-three (33) units of coursework comprising of core courses (15 units) and specialization courses (18). A capstone project (6 units) is the terminal activity of the graduate student, which must be presented in a local or international research forum.

 

Program Outcomes

  • Demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of the Information Technology principles and practices.
  • Demonstrate a deep appreciation of one IT specialization in solving complex Business-IT problems.
  • Identify and analyze organizational needs and take them into account in the evaluation and formulation of IT-based solutions.
  • Recommend IT solutions based on industry-recognized best practices and standards.
  • Effectively produce and implement optimal solutions to complex Information Technology problems.
  • Craft policies, guidelines, and procedures to assure the integrity and maintainability of an Information System.

NU Computing Research Center

The National University Computing Research Center (NU CRC) is envisioned to be an agent for economic growth and a leading research hub under the College of Computing and Information Technologies (CCIT). The NU CRC is aimed at pioneering and directing the development, advancement, preservation, and dissemination of knowledge in the field of computing.

Under the CRC are three (3) computing research laboratories designed to support the research initiatives of CCIT for both faculty members and students in various computing disciplines.

Research Laboratories

Web and Mobile Computing Innovations (WaMCl)Laboratory

The Web and Mobile Computing Innovations (WaMCI) Laboratory supports and provides a venue for research endeavors of students and faculty members of CCIT in the field of Web, Cloud, and Mobile Computing. The WaMCI Laboratory is focused on web and mobile systems and their applications in pervasive computing, augmented reality, education, healthcare, security, unmanned aerial vehicles, and robotics. Research under the laboratory includes innovations in web and mobile applications in both smartphones and tablets with the goal of addressing societal and business needs.

Human Interaction and Digital Signal Processing (HiDSP) Laboratory

The Human Interaction and Digital Signal Processing (HiDSP)Laboratory supports and provides a venue for research endeavors of students and faculty members of CCIT in the fields of human-computer interaction and digital signals processing. HiDSP is dedicated to the pursuit of research and development works in the analysis of interaction between people and computers, and signal processing such as sounds and images. The goal of the laboratory is to develop competent and productive research that addresses societal issues and can be applied in nation-building. Furthermore, involved researchers will explore the application of different advanced machine learning and computational approaches in solving engineering problems

Human Language Technology (HLT) Laboratory

The Human Language Technology (HLT) Laboratory is envisioned both as the national benchmark and leading research and innovation space in the ASEAN region for the field of human language technology. With an interdisciplinary team of researchers and innovators, the collective is pioneering and directing the development, advancement, preservation, and dissemination of knowledge in this field.
