Students who successfully complete the required postgraduate courses at HEBUT can then enrol directly into the Massey University Master of Information Sciences. Students can then graduate after 1 year of successful full-time study with Massey University, and may be required to return to HEBUT for up to one year to complete any remaining requirements to achieve an additional HEBUT qualification, including an oral examination. (1 year + 1 year + 1 year).
New Zealand Qualification
The Master of Information Sciences will give you in-depth knowledge and expertise in a range of topics within the area of information sciences. In the Master of Information Sciences, you will study several topics in depth and explore how best to apply your new knowledge and some new technologies. Studying towards your master’s is a satisfying and challenging process that will give you a sought-after postgraduate qualification. If you want to gain a more detailed understanding of an area of study, either for interest, or to perhaps move up the hierarchy in your career, you should consider this qualification.
During your study you will learn how to apply problem-solving and analytical thinking skills to the analysis of, and solutions to, complex computing problems in areas such as:
• machine learning
• computer vision
• system security
• user interface design
• data science and analytics
At Massey you’ll be part of small, interactive classes where you can have close contact with your lecturer.
The professional practice project is an important part of this master’s (unless you convert to the research thesis). You will spend one semester working full time on your project. You could have the opportunity to get involved in projects for real companies on real issues that they wish to solve. This can lead to employment with the company concerned and also adds substantial value to your resume when you are seeking employment.
Candidates will be required to:
- Satisfy all programme admission requirements;
- Have a B grade average or better in the first year of the HEBUT Programme;
- Have completed a research proposal and literature review on the topic of their research in English;
- IELTS 6.5 (no band less than 6.0);
