Master of Science in Information Technology with Internet Applications (MSCITIA)
Distance Learning Mode Part-time
The programme will not admit any more new students.
The University is phasing out
the Information Technology with Internet Applications (MSCITIA) programme suite, which includes the Postgraduate Diploma in Internet Technology and Applications (PDITA) and the Postgraduate Certificate in Multimedia and Internet Technology (PCMIT). The University considers that the enrolment of the MSCITIA programme suite is too low to sustain it.
You should start making plans to complete the remaining courses required for your programme. The following shows the course offering schedule.*

We strongly recommend you consider completing your programme in three years (although five years is also feasible). We will contact you soon to help you finalize a study plan for completing your programme.
