Which one you will go, Master of Science in Information Technology (MSIT) or Master in Information Technology (MIT)? Both Master of Science in Information Technology and Master in Information Technology includes the advanced theoretical and practical aspects of IT. There is an in-depth approach to programming, with a balance in the development of proprietary technologies.
The difference of MSIT and MIT is, the MSIT program must completed with a Thesis Project. Where, a Thesis involves the study of an Information Technology case and develop of a solution. While the MIT program, needs a software project as a requirement for completion. A software project includes a complete project study or feasibility study which is similar into thesis. The MSIT program is commonly taken by education practitioners and little of those having careers in Information Technology, while MIT is chosen by programmers, web developers and those other practicing Information Technology careers in the industry. The answer is easy, the selection of the above course depending on your target career or your current job, if you are working in academe, choose MSIT, while if you are in the industry, choose MIT (for it is not advisable for faculty members). A masters without “Science” (non-MS) or a doctorate without “Philosophy” (non-Ph.D.) is sometimes not acceptable as a credentials for most serious institution looking for aligned educational attainment. So the decision is always depend on your present career or targeted career. For me, MIT is more difficult, because it includes a completion of a software project, while MSIT doesn’t. Anyway, it depends on the institution, but this is the difference of the said programs.
