Practical IT studies for Indian student

After completing her undergraduate degree in IT, Vijaya Burra had a myriad of choices before her.

“I compared all the universities of Australia, and after speaking to a Macquarie representative at an education fair in India, I believe Macquarie’s Master of Information Technology (MIT) program was unique.”

Originally from Hyderabad, India, Vijaya and her husband moved to Sydney and Vijaya commenced her MIT.

“I like the practical aspect of the Master program. I think you learn best by doing rather that just theory. It’s very career and skills oriented.”

Enjoying the social life of university, Vijaya prefers the group assignment over the individual assessments. “I enjoy the group assignments; you become friends with the people in your class and it’s a good experience in team building which prepares you for working life.”

Macquarie University is located in the hub of Sydney’s IT industry, with neighbours including Microsoft, Sony, Dow Corning and Nortel Networks. “I like the ambiance of the campus, it is very peaceful and a good place to study,” says Vijaya.

Vijaya has been impressed with the high standard of lecturers. “The teachers are very cooperative; they a happy to help students at any time. There is also plenty of assistance in the lab.” Adjunct lecturers in the MIT program include senior executives from IBM, Microsoft and Intel.

“I have made friends from all around the world. At orientation I felt a little confused and got lost a couple of times. But I settled in quickly and feel quite at home here.”
