School of IT & Engineering

About The School

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 and for producing work-ready, industry-focused graduates.

The School offers undergraduate and postgraduate programs in IT, Cyber Security, 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.
