Massey is one of the few universities in New Zealand where your information sciences qualification covers all three disciplines of computer science, information technology and software engineering. The majors are not isolated and you can choose to have more or less of these three areas as part of your study, depending on your area of interest or career ambitions.

You’ll learn a broad spectrum of skills from business management through to developing software and hardware. So you’ll emerge from your studies at Massey with a well-rounded understanding of the whole industry, as well as with the specialist skills that you’ll need to become an excellent ICT professional.

The Graduate Diploma in Information Sciences (GradDipInfSc) is intended mainly for graduates in one area who are seeking to retrain in a specific area of information sciences or update their knowledge and skills in that area. The programme takes one year or the equivalent by part-time study.

You can use this diploma to complete the equivalent of a Bachelor of Information Sciences major in one of the subjects of that degree.

The personal approach

When you study the Graduate Diploma in Information Sciences at Massey, you’ll join small classes, where interaction with the lecturer is commonplace. You will be able to ask questions of the lecturers and get their support and advice.

  • Think logically and analytically
  • Are interested in developing software applications
  • Are comfortable with rules and structures
