Welcome to the School of Information Technology and Engineering (SITE) at MIT. The School has been involved in the field of information and communication technologies (ICT) and Engineering education since the mid-nineties. We are a group of committed professionals with a passion for education, for producing work-ready, industry-focused graduates.

The School offers undergraduate and postgraduate programs in IT, Networking and Engineering, from Higher Education Diplomas, to Bachelors and Masters, both in our Melbourne and Sydney campuses. We also offer similar programs--at both campuses--for the Federation University Australia .

Although our main concern is education, we have a very active applied, industry-oriented research presence in the areas of Network and Communications Security, Software Engineering, Enterprise Systems and Architecture and Health Informatics.

Associate Prof. Johnson Ihyeh Agbinya
Head of the School IT & Engineering


We educate our SITE graduates to:

  • be technically competent;
  • be knowledgeable in their own discipline and the related foundation knowledge;
  • be independent learners and workers;
  • be work-ready;
  • communicate effectively;
  • demonstrate commitment to professional ethics and cultural awareness.
