There are few areas of our lives that information sciences do not touch. Information and communication technology (ICT) is a fast-growing, fascinating area to study and research.
Massey has world-leading staff in our areas of expertise, teaching and researching at the leading edge of information sciences. We prepare our students to take their place as leaders in this rapidly-growing industry.
Massey's study programmes are unique in that they cover the spectrum of computing - from hardware to software and mobile apps through to managing information technology.
There is a shortage of qualified information sciences graduates. Massey University's computer science, information technology and software engineering programmes are among the best and most comprehensive in New Zealand.
Massey's research in this area focuses on:
software design and engineering
mobile applications and virtual worlds
cyber security and computer forensics
artificial intelligence and smart environments
simulation, scientific computation and visualisation
computer vision, image processing, machine learning
Computer science is about learning computer languages to write programs. You will create software to solve problems. You’ll gain the knowledge and skills to write software for fields such as artificial intelligence, graphics, networks and operating systems.
Massey University is the first and only university in New Zealand to offer to equip undergraduate students as data scientists. This data science major will give you the skills to fill the rapidly growing number of jobs in the area of data science and analysis.
Information technology now extends into almost every aspect of our lives. In nearly a generation, internet and web technologies have found their way into homes, businesses and social situations throughout the globe.
If you choose a software engineering major you will gain a knowledge of the application of a systematic, disciplined and quantifiable approach to the development, operation and maintenance of large and complex software systems.
