Why study the Master of Philosophy in Computer and Information Science?

The IIE Master of Philosophy in Computer and Information Sciences is a 100 percent research programme. A research candidate is required to undertake a programme of supervised research within the faculty resulting in the completion of a major thesis.

The research should contribute to the discipline by applying, critiquing, analysing or interpreting knowledge in ways that facilitate pathways for further learning following an independent investigation of a student-formulated research problem.

Students acquire research skills appropriate to their discipline, gain increased understanding of the fundamentals of conceptual, methodological and implementation issues of IT-related research, and will conduct research in a selected area using the concepts and principles learned, which culminates in the completion of a master’s thesis.

Supervisors are available in most areas of the information systems domain including both technical and non-technical areas.
