Information Technology Research II

20 Units

This course is the final part of Information Technology Research courses commenced in the associated course INFO6101. It further develops research skills through the completion of a research project. The course is conducted under the supervision of an academic staff member who is the student's research supervisor. By the start of this course, students will have completed a literature review, identified a suitable research question and developed a robust research design. The course develops an Honours research project from the initial drafts to its completion.

In the course students will:

  1. develop and implement a research plan;
  2. where appropriate to the project, collect and analyse data and communicate the results in a meaningful manner;
  3. develop critical and analytical skills;
  4. develop time management skills appropriate to research at Honours level;
  5. develop editing and drafting skills for research projects;
  6. discuss research findings using appropriate communication skills;
  7. finalise a theoretically, methodologically and technically sophisticated research project appropriate to MIT Honours level.

The content of the research project will be substantially determined by the student, in that the student will choose, in consultation with the Honours Co-ordinator, the topic of his/her thesis or technical/creative project and on this basis will be allocated a supervisor from within the discipline area. The project area will determine the detailed content. Drafting aspects of the thesis and technical/creative project appropriate to research projects undertaken at Honours level. Finalising a theoretically, methodologically and technically sophisticated research project.
