Study Options
Students who successfully complete the required undergraduate courses at GISM can then enrol directly into the Massey University Bachelor of Information Sciences. Students can then graduate after two years of successful full-time study with Massey University (2 years + 2 years).

New Zealand Qualification
Exciting challenges and careers are available in software development, business analysis, project management. Massey provides you with the technical skills and knowledge to take your place in the fastest growing industry in the world. Link with industry while you study.

Massey is the only university in New Zealand to offer five ITC-related majors in the same degree. This allows you to mix and match courses to suit your strengths and interests. Enjoy smaller classes with individual attention from lecturers. Experience the first-year courses and still be able to change your major at the start of the second year. Include a double major or a minor (in any subject) or New Zealand’s only minor in Games Programming.

Massey transfers credits from a wide range of previous study. If you have a previous diploma in any area of ITC, it is highly likely that you will be awarded credits towards your BInfSc.

Massey teaches students the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in the software industry. Topics include:
• mobile applications
• graphics and games programming
• networks and security
• web development and internet programming
• artificial intelligence.
• machine learning and data wrangling.

Massey is the only university in New Zealand specialising in the C and C++ programming languages that are highly sought after by employers. You’ll also learn Java, Python, SQL and other languages.

Massey has close ties with the innovative and rapidly expanding software companies based in North Auckland. These companies offer opportunities for internships, industry projects, holiday work and possible employment offers. Students are also involved in creating websites and applications for charities and voluntary organisations.
